Thus, Market performance YTD has recorded 1.36% positive return. The strong and healthy first quarter results of 2011 for the Saudi banks, petrochemical and retail companies' earnings along with the steadiness of oil prices above the USD 100/barrel level, have led to the upward performance in TASI during this month.
