In US, manufacturing and service sector PMI data painted a robust growth picture of the economy, with solid wage growth adding to further evidence of strength. The S&P 500 rose for the 8th consecutive session before falling marginally on Friday.

Weakness in GBP lent support to FTSE, which was the 2nd best performer amongst tracked indices. In Asia, Japan’s benchmark posted strong gains amidst weaker yen and rising inflation. GCC GCC markets closed on a mixed note this week. Saudi Arabia’s benchmark started on a weak note, after FTSE had decided to delay including Riyadh in its secondary emerging market index. The benchmark however recouped some losses during the week. Kuwait’s benchmark started on a strong footing after FTSE decided to upgrade Kuwait to emerging market status in September 2018, however the index gave up most of its gains as the decision was largely expected. Dubai’s index closed in green amidst strength in Real Estate and Telecommunication stocks. Qatar The QE index continued its downward trajectory this week as foreign investors sold off stocks ahead of the 3rd quarter earnings releases. Real Estate sector led declines majorly on back of strong sell-off witnessed in Ezdan Holding Group.
