Middle-East Markets See Extremely Bad Start Of The Year

Middle-East Markets See Extremely Bad Start Of The Year

Broad Middle-East and African stock markets crashed over 5%, erasing any gains back to November 2008 as the carnage from last week continues. From Kuwait (-4.3%) to Qatar (-8%) it was a bloodbath as Saudi Arabia Tadawul Index plunged 5.4% - the most since Black Monday (now down over 50% from their 2014 highs). These losses are far in excess of U.S. 'catch-up' moves and suggest a dark cloud over Asia this evening.
