Middle-East Opens Weak: Dubai Stocks Slump To 2-Year Lows As Financials Tumble

Tyler Durden's picture

Following Friday's further freefall in crude oil prices, The Middle East is opening down notably. Abu Dhabi, Saudi, and Kuwait are lower; Israel is weak and UAE and Qatar are tumbling, but Dubai is worst for now.  Dubai is down for the 6th day in a row (dropping over 3% - the most in a month) extending the opening losses to 2-year lows. The 11% drop in the last 6 days is the largest since the post-China-devaluation global stock collapse. Leading the losses are financial and property firms.

In a replay of August, Middle-East equity markets are tumbling as China allows the Yuan to weaken...


Sending Dubai stocks to 2 year lows and breaking critical support...


Financials and property firms extend and accelerate their recent losses...

Isn't one of Obama's sons heavily invested in Dubai?

My hope is Putin and Russia send the Saudis, UAE, Qatar and Dubai a few dozen KalibrM's or maybe one or two RS-36M aka SS-18 Satan or a RSM-56 Bulava. 


F***king scumbags have helped murder countless innocent people in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen and other places with Uncle Sham and Schlomo.

Your hope is widely shared.

All I'd ask is that Russia get to work on the cobalt bomb, if she hasn't already. Make that shit so radioactive that it'll be centuries before rebuilding is an option.

I'll give credit to the banksters for finally reining in their Arab proxies in 1973 after Israel threatened to nuke Europe's financial capitals, if the banksters sat back and let another holocaust happen. Wall Street realized there was no way to hedge against the atomic bomb.

The Arabs themselves will have to learn the hard way.

Its nice to know somebody's life matters as no one gives a damn about the rest of us, except for what we have in our wallets.

Its a "democracy", so you only have yourselves to blame. Stop electing pieces of shit, but the media would never allow that...

It's a republic that has been bastardized into a "democracy" by TPTB. We're not to blame, save for not shooting the people who let this happen.

No sympathy for these Middle East markets.  They could have BSed crude up last OPEC meeting, but instead they think they can tough it with low oil prices  out until the entire US shale industry goes bankrupt.

Because the shale industry is SOOO good for America, like giving another hit to a crack head...

I never heard any African American say, or post, ONLY black lives matter. Your a piece of shit distraction, in America, only Israeli lives matter, certainly not American or Muslim lives.

Does this mean we get to fly planes into the Burj Khalifa?

Oh, goodie!!

If you ram a 747 into that new kilometer high building it will probably come craashing down sideways instead of pancacking like the ones on 9/11.  Or maybe it will just tilt like the leaning tower of Pizza.

In any case, I wouldn't want to live or work anywhere near a target like that.

Oh yes, because everyone knows that crashing planes into buildings gets you perfecting demolished structures, even when the planes don't even hit the building like #7...

When we've finally had enough of their shit? No. We get to fire hydrogen bombs at that thing. It'll disappear in a puff of smoke and a far more satisfying bang.

And it will NEVER be rebuilt. Nor should it.

Paris climate summit is against carbon (oil). These past 6 days of trading go right along with those bastards that don't like Dodge ram trucks w/a tow package or the nice 2016 Holiday Rambler w/cruise control to go RV'ing across the country in.

Vapour wealth.  Goes up like hot air, fills bubbles, poofs when bubbles deflate.  Unless the "holder" of the "wealth" cashes out to some greater fool before the bubble pops, the "wealth" escapes.

Its all Dubaious wealth


(sorry for the pun).

Its a world wide (save the Russians, Chinese, those heavily involved in the AIIB and those who really have physical gold and want to rid the world of the disease) problem because the world is still addicted to the worthless USD.

Once the oil runs out they'll revert back to what they were before the wealth.

It will be insignificant.

What, like Palmyra?

I recommend leaving nothing of Dubai for posterity but a cobalt-salted crater several miles wide and so radioactive anybody daft enough to visit the former site of Dubai gets a lethal dose of radiation in an hour. 

Repeat for all major cities in the Arabian Peninsula.

Islam, when it has a choice, gives no quarter, and obliterated the memory of all that came before it. No quarter should be shown Islam, and no monuments to Islam's evil deeds should be allowed to stand.

I guess the genecidal war that the Saudis and UAE are waging in Yemen is not going well.  The Saudis and their mercenaries in yemen have been getting smashed. Tanks, BMPs and those stupid aromored cars are easily blown up by the Houthis.  The Saudis have lost at least 5 small naval ships.

Time for the Houthis and Shia to bring the war to Saudi Arabia and UAE.
