RIYADH: Saudi stocks fell in the final session last week, in line with most Gulf peers, as oil prices continued to fluctuate.
The main TASI index ended down 0.2% at 12,621, while the parallel market Nomu edged up 0.2% to 21,574.
Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Bahrain and Oman all lost between 0.1 and 1.5%, while Qatar and Kuwait bucked the trend to close up 0.2%.
Elsewhere in the Middle East, the Egyptian EGX30 index gained 0.4%.
Oil prices stabilized on Friday but fell for the week on a stronger US dollar and fears that an economic slowdown would weaken demand for crude.
Brent crude settled at $96.72 a barrel and US West Texas Intermediate crude ended the week at $90.77.
