Saudi stocks slump after drone strikes hit Aramco oil plants

PressBee - Russia Today :


The Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul) started Sunday’s trading down as its key index dropped more than two percent, dragged down by the recent attacks on the kingdom’s key oil facilities.
The Tadawul All Share Index lost around 2.5 percent as it hit 7,629.49 points after the opening bell. The drop was reportedly led by Al Rajhi Bank and Saudi Basic Industries Corporation, both of which slid around three percent.
The Arab world’s largest equity market regained some losses later in the day, standing at 7,734.94 points, but still down 1.24 percent, as of 10am GMT.
