May 23, 2012
The KSE Market Index fell 0.22% to hit a three-week low, closing at 6,366.95 Wednesday. Kuwait correlates with the price of oil, which lost 11.37% in value in the last four weeks as GCC and Iraq production volumes hit multi-year highs in order to compensate for Iranian export losses. National Bank of Kuwait or NBK closed unchanged, but losses in the industrial and the telco segment weighed on the gauge. Islamic financial institution Kuwait Finance House pr KFH advanced 2.81%, finishing the session at KD0.730.
