Gulf Arab stock markets in stutter mode, but analysts remain optimistic

After a tricky start into the second quarter, analysts expressed confidence that Gulf Arab stock exchanges have the potential to return to the bullish mode in which they were during the first quarter.

The Dubai Financial Market (DFM) and the Saudi Tadawul market could not sustain the strong first quarter 2012, when they advanced 21.83 percent and 22.09 percent respectively. The picture changed during the first two weeks of April. Ahead of the first quarter earnings season, the DFM and the Tadawul, which are considered to be bellwether gauges in the Gulf Arab region, traded sideways and lost 4 percent, respectively, amid low trading volumes.

News that Spain's debt management is getting out of control and worries that the U.S. recovery might not be as strong as expected weighed on the global sentiment in the last two weeks.

Albeit the sluggish phase occurred during the Easter holiday, when many Western investors abstained from trading shares at home and in the Middle East, doubts came up about if the strong first quarter can be repeated. Nevertheless bankers and analysts expressed optimism that the current sluggish phase might be a correction, rather than a trend reversal.

The Libor is an average interest rate calculated through submissions of interest rates by major banks in London.

Digital shopkeepers http://www.economist.com/blogs/graphicdetail/2012/04/daily-chart-2

MUCH of the world may still (or again) be in recession, but the internet keeps growing—and so does its economic weight. In the G20 countries, the internet economy will grow at more than 10% annually for the next five years and by 2016 reach $4.2 trillion, or 5.3% of GDP—up from $2.3 billion and 4.1% in 2010, according to a recent report by the Boston Consulting Group (BCG). But there are big differences between countries. Britain leads the pack. Its internet economy is now bigger than its construction and education sectors, mainly thanks to the popularity of e-commerce. To paraphrase Adam Smith, the country has become a nation of digital shopkeepers. China and, to some extent, India stand out thanks internet-related exports in goods and services, respectively. South Korea and Japan are also strong in both e-commerce and exports. Europe punches below its weight, mainly because its internet economy is held back by a lack of a single digital market. If the European Commission succeeds in creating one, the old continent may be able to pull ahead of the new one by 2016.
