Saudi human resources company KABI acquires AI-based recruitment solutions provider Bloovo


RIYADH: Saudi shares fell on Tuesday, extending losses for another session as investors weighed the impact of a potential economic slowdown.

TASI, as the main index is known, fell 0.27% ending the day at 12,020, while the parallel market, Nomu, added 0.21% to 21,505.

Bahrain and Kuwait lost 0.5% each, and Oman’s index remained almost stable.

Elsewhere in the Middle East, the Egyptian EGX30 lost 0.3%.

However, other Gulf exchanges including Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Qatar bucked the downward trend to close higher in the previous session.

In the energy market, Brent crude was trading at $121.54 a barrel and US West Texas Intermediate at $119.27 as of 9:22 a.m. KST on Wednesday.
