The development of stock market is considered a fundamental part in economic development. In this concern, the study aims to examine the long run causal relationship between economic growth and stock market development in Saudi Arabia using the autoregressive distribute lag model (ARDL) with bound test. The results suggest that Saudi stock market development have both significant negative and positive causal relationship on economic growth. Total value of stocks traded, concentration and volatility found to cause negative significant effect on economic growth. While stock market capitalization and market turnover ratio have positively significant effect on economic growth. However, there is partial unidirectional causality flow from both stock market capitalization and stock market turnover to economic growth and a partial unidirectional causality flow from economic growth to total value of traded shares.
