The Stoxx Europe 600 Index climbed 0.9 per cent last week after the Bank of England announced credit-easing measures. Saudi Basic Industries, or Sabic, rose to 91.5 riyals, the highest intraday level since June 11, and Al Rajhi Bank advanced 1 per cent to 74.5 riyals, poised for the highest close since June 11.
