DUBAI, April 6 (Reuters) - Gulf stock markets may consolidate on Monday as their initial reaction to the Iran nuclear deal fades, while Saudi Arabia could rebound moderately after a slight uptick in oil prices.

The Saudi stock index sank 1.7 percent to 8,590 points on Sunday because of the prospect of lower oil prices if a final agreement by a June 30 deadline lifts sanctions on Tehran and allows more Iranian oil into the market. Brent oil plunged nearly 4.0 percent on Thursday.
