Qatar’s 2026 sovereign dollar bond fell to its lowest level since March on Monday after Saudi Arabia, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain severed ties with Doha, accusing it of supporting terrorism.
The coordinated diplomatic move dramatically escalates a dispute over Qatar’s support of the Muslim Brotherhood, the world’s oldest Islamist movement, and adds accusations that Doha even backs the agenda of Iran.
Qatar’s 2026 dollar-denominated eurobond fell 1.8 cents, according to Tradweb data, to 99 cents in the dollar. The shorter-term 2019 equivalent also slid, hitting its lowest since at least late 2013.
Credit rating agency Moody’s said that the regional rift could have a negative impact on Qatar if it disrupts trade and capital flows.
