Saudi Tadawul market in fierce fight to defend 6,600 points

The Riyadh equitye measure TASI fell the second session straight Wednesday, closing at 6,661.26 points, as only nine shares advanced, while 130 declined. Sabic fell back to SR90 (down one percent). Since the Riyadh-based gauge hit a three-and-a-half year high at 7,930 points on April 4, the measure fell sharply. Its next support is between 6,600 to 6,650, the old trading range from mid-2011.
