Lackluster Bahrain Bourse bucks sluggish global trend

Against all odds, the Manama-based market index added 0.04% to close at 1,184.92 points. Trading activity was concentrated on the financial sector. Ahli United Bank advanced 0.74%, while Islamic bank Ithmaar closed unchanged. Al Salam Bank Bahrain dived 5.62%, finishing an unspectacular trading day as a top loser.
