Doha, July 26, 2007
The Doha Securities Market, in a bid to discourage insider trading, said it will publicly identify executives who trade in the stock of their company as of Sunday.
"Starting Sunday, July 29, all insider trading-dealing will be disclosed on the DSM Web site," the bourse said in a statement on Thursday.
Companies will have to say when their directors are meeting to discuss and approve earnings, the bourse said.
