In remarks to Qatar News Agency (QNA), financial market expert Ramzi Qasmieh said that there are a group of factors that led to the rise in the QSE index during the current week, achieving positive weekly and monthly gains.

He pointed out that today's session coincided with a weekly and monthly conclusion, as the QSE index achieved weekly gains of 1.67 percent, and monthly gains of approximately 3.97 percent, in addition to the fact that today's closings coincided with the implementation of the results of the quarterly review of the Morgan Stanley“MSCI” indexes issued earlier this February.
