Oil Updates — Crude climbs ahead of OPEC+ meeting; Germany to use windfall tax income to reduce energy prices

RIYADH: Saudi stocks bucked a regional trend to start the week higher on Sunday, mirroring oil market gains ahead of Monday’s meeting of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, known as OPEC+.

The Tadawul All Share Index edged up 0.4 percent to finish at 12,194, while the parallel Nomu market jumped 1.5 percent to 21,640.

Apart from Saudi Arabia, most Gulf markets registered losses as inflation fears weakened investor sentiment.

Qatar, Oman, and Kuwait all lost between 0.3 and 0.6 percent, while Bahrain’s BAX was flat.

Outside the Gulf, the Egyptian index EGX30 gained 0.6 percent.

As traders expected potential oil output cuts, Brent crude advanced to $95.11 a barrel and US West Texas Intermediate reached $88.6 as of 8:59 a.m. Saudi time on Monday.
