UAE. The relative repercussions to the regional geopolitical situation continued to affect another week of trading.

Generally, volumes have dropped off as investors prefer to move to the sidelines and wait – with summer vacations also kicking in, this may be a safe strategy to adopt. However, pockets of opportunity are still available for the smart investor – UAE has been driven up recently by Emaar’s announcement to IPO its retail business and payout a dividend from the IPO proceeds.

Egypt soldiers on, with selling cycles being met with targeted buying from long term investors. Saudi is certainly in a holding pattern, with many eyes on the MSCI announcement – if Saudi gets put on the wait list, a market rally could follow.

As we head into the 3rd week of June, expect more of cautious trading, as regional markets slog through the summer.
