The Tadawul All-Shares Index (TASI) closed at 6,115.19 points, down by 40.69 points, the limited movement appearing to be mainly the cashing in of profits earned on Saturday. The largest Arab bourse had surged 1.93 percent on its first day of trading of the week on Saturday.All sectors but one were down, but by no more than 0.98 percent registered by the real estate sectors. The petrochemicals sector dropped 0.72 percent. The Kuwait exchange also dropped on Sunday.

In neighbouring Abu Dhabi, the general index was up 0.46 percent at 2,600.48 points, with real estate shares closing 0.80 percent up and banks 0.92 percent higher.
