    Oil, 9/11 & Tech: Saudi Prince Visits U.S. This Week

    The iShares MSCI Saudi Arabia exchange-traded fund (KSA) was up 1.7% this week through Wednesday, while the VanEck Vectors Gulf States Index ETF (MES) was down 0.3% and the WisdomTree Middle East Dividend Fund (GULF) was down 1%. The latter addresses the Saudi's negotiations leverage with U.S. government leaders, and notes that Saudi Arabia owns fewer U.S. government bonds than some thought: "As the result of a Bloomberg News Freedom of Information request, the U.S. Treasury Department on May 16 finally disclosed for the first time that Saudi holdings of U.S. treasuries amounted to $116.8 billion at the end of March—far less than expected—and only accounts to about 20 percent of the kingdom’s total $587 billion in foreign reserves." There is hope that Saudi Arabia could be included in MSCI's emerging market index next year, but Pakistan got there first this week.
