Saudi Arabian stocks advanced the most in two months a day before the Arab world’s biggest bourse allows foreigners direct access. Dubai’s benchmark index rose.

The Tadawul All Share Index climbed 1.3 percent to 9,644.57 at the close in Riyadh, led by Al Rajhi Bank, the stock with the biggest weighting on the gauge. Saudi Basic Industries Corp., the world’s top petrochemicals manufacturer by sales, was the second-biggest contributor to the gain with a 2.3 percent increase.
