MIDEAST STOCKS-Banking shares buck global uptrend in UAE but Emaar helps Dubai | Reuters:

"Banking shares in the United Arab Emirates were generally weak in early trade on Thursday despite a strong performance by their global counterparts, but Emaar Properties helped Dubai's bourse rise slightly. The prospect of higher interest rates from central banks around the world, including Britain and Canada, bolstered banking stocks overnight and helped the S&P 500 score its biggest one-day percentage gain in about two months on Wednesday. Banks were also strong in Asia on Thursday. But in Abu Dhabi, the only lender to rise was Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank, up 0.3 percent. Union National Bank was the worst performer , retreating 3.6 percent. The Abu Dhabi index was down 0.1 percent."
