In this section, we examine the historical performance of the MSCI GCC Index (MSCI GCC) and the MSCI Emerging Markets Index (MSCI EM) from June 2005 (since MSCI started calculating indexes for the region) to date, and comment on the historical correlation between the two indices. we also feel that a comparison between the historical performance of the MSCI GCC and oil prices is imperative in the context of the analysis.
