The DFM itself added 2.82%, closing at Dhs1.46. as Dubai's local exchange announced today that its listed local public joint stock companies have recorded a 100% compliance regarding the disclosure of Q2-2010 results within the deadline of 45 days from the end of the period. DFM suspended trading of 7 foreign listed companies, which didn't disclose its quarterly results within the deadline.
