A total of 995.8 million shares were traded, including 630.3 million shares in the Abu Dhabi market and 365.49 million shares in the Dubai market, with more than 23.9 thousand deals executed in both markets, according to Emirates News.

The Dubai financial market closed 0.42% or 13 points higher at 3072.91 points.

The Abu Dhabi market rose 0.8% or 67.9 points to 8,546.52.
