The Dubai market closed 0.61% lower at 1,466.56 points Sunday. Weak input from the Saudi bourse, which fell below 7,000 Saturday, weighed on the measure.

Investment bank Shuaa capital dived 6.54%. Seven shares advanced, 19 declined and one stock closed even. Some 67.1m shares were traded, valued at Dhs76.86m.
