Dubai market takes deep breath on weaker money supply, lower PMI-continued

March 06, 2012--The Dubai Financial Market (DFM) General Index fell 3.71% to close at 1,689.18 points. Bellwether Emaar, the UAE's first real estate developer, declined 2.95%, while Gulf General Investment Company or GGICO lost the most (off 10%).
Islamic home finance provider Tamweel was the only gaining share (up 12.90%). The DFM rose almost 30% during the last nine weeks and was hit by profit bookings.
