(U.S. Edition) The cloud of suspicion around the possible murder of a dissident Saudi journalist hung over a drop of the key index on the Saudi stock market on Sunday, but Monday is a bit of a different story. Some of that may be linked to President Trump, who said he’d punish Saudi Arabia while also focusing on the country’s denials and how stopping arms sales would harm the U.S. Also, we check in with economics contributor Chris Farrell about the state of U.S. real estate.
