(MENAFN - Arab Times) Kuwait Stock Exchange (KSE) ended last week in the red zone. The price index closed at 7,704.34 points, down by 0.78% from the week before closing, the weighted index decreased by 0.68% after closing at 453.34 points, whereas the KSX-15 index closed at 1,076.02 points down by 0.26%. Furthermore, last week's average daily turnover decreased by 0.92%, compared to the preceding week, reaching K.D 24.07 million, whereas trading volume average was 280.97 million shares, recording increase of 46.08%. All KSE indices closed in the red zone for the second consecutive week, as a result to the selling operations that controlled the trading activities during most of the week's sessions, whereas the selling pressures included many listed stocks, both large-caps and small-caps, targeting profit collection.

This action came among a limited fluctuating performance due to the speculative activity that continued to control the trading activities. Moreover, the stock market is still suffering from a noticeable repulsion against trading, and weak purchasing operations, which negatively affected the trading activity in the market, especially the value that recorded in one of the sessions its lowest level since last October. On the other hand, some of the last week's traded stocks witnessed random purchasing operations enabled the market indices to limit its losses on the weekly level; also the market received some support from the collection operations performed by the investment groups, in order to improve its annual financial results, as we are approaching the year end. For the annual performance, the price index ended last week recording 29.83% annual gains compared to its closing in 2012, hile the weighted index increased by 8.55%, and the KSX-15 recorded 6.63% growth.
