Saudi stocks returned to decline to lose what they gained in the last two sessions, closing at 8,123 points, losing 75 points, about 0.93 per cent, while the MT30 index, which measures the performance of the blue-chips, fell seven points by 0.70 per cent. The decline came with almost collective pressure from sectors and most stocks, but the market still maintains its levels above 8,090 points, which leaves opportunities for market cohesion, as the market will witness more selling pressure driven by stop-loss operations in the event that the index falls below those levels. The decline in oil prices coincided with the decline in oil prices, as Brent crude lost nearly 5 percent during yesterday’s session. Despite the decline, the market is still witnessing a rise in a number of stocks at the maximum rate, which shows the continuation of the speculative trend. With the approaching deadline for the disclosure of financial results for the third quarter, the intensity of advertisements will increase the performance of companies, which may affect the extent of market volatility and movement during the coming sessions, especially if the results are contrary to expectations.
