RIYADH: In line with a fall in the oil market, Saudi Arabia’s main stock index TASI retreated by 0.88 percent in the previous trading session, finishing the week with over a 1 percent fall.

Oil prices, which jumped to record highs following the Russia-Ukraine conflict, paused their rally amid rising market volatility and eased supply worries.

Brent crude lost almost $20 on the week, reaching $112.67 a barrel as of Friday, and US West Texas Intermediate fell to near $109.

Elsewhere in the GCC, stock markets were mixed at their close on Thursday, with indices of Abu Dhabi and Oman adding 0.9 and 1.7 percent, respectively.

Bahrain’s BAX was down 0.7 percent, while stock exchanges in Dubai, Qatar, and Kuwait ended flat.
