By Ole S Hansen, Head of Commodity Strategy at Saxo Bank
Dubai, UAE, December 09, 2018: Commodities received a late boost after the Opec+ group managed to agree to a decent output cut; gold, meanwhile, received a bid following a weak US jobs report. The market’s overall focus stayed with the US-China trade war and the increased prospect of a US slowdown.

Dubai, UAE, December 01, 2018: According to ICAEW’s latest Economic Insight report, economic recovery in the Middle East is slowly gathering momentum after last year’s slump, when economic growth slowed to an eight-year low at only 0.9%. Overall, the Middle East’s GDP is expected to grow to 2.3% in 2018, though growth remains below the 2010-2016 average of 3.9%. The accountancy and finance body says oil continues to dominate and shape the macroeconomic outlook for Middle Eastern economies, despite major economic diversification efforts.
Economic Insight: Middle East Q4 2018, produced by Oxford Economics, says the same factors that slowed down economic growth in 2017 are now contributing to the overall economic recovery. Oil prices have hit their highest levels since the end of November 2014 in recent weeks at ......read more
Dubai, UAE, November 28, 2018: According to ICAEW’s latest Economic Insight report, the economic outlook for UAE is set to accelerate to 2% this year, up from the eight-year low of 0.8% in 2017, supported by rising oil prices, regional economic recovery, higher public spending and investment and a gradual build-up in business momentum. The accountancy and finance body says the non-oil sector, which represents close to 70% of the UAE’s economy, is driving the country’s economic growth this year.
Economic Insight: Middle East Q4 2018, produced by Oxford Economics, says the oil sector is expected to remain a drag on growth in 2018, as overall production has remained limited in the first half of 2018 at an average of 2.85 million barrels per day, down by almost 2% from the average of 2.91 million barrels per day in ......read more
