Equity Down, Oil Prices Up

Oil prices continue to rise due to the military action started by a coalition of countries in Yemen. This, however, had no bearing on equity rates – world major indices closed in the red yesterday.

As such in Europe, the British FTSE 100 dropped 1.37 percent down to 6,895.33 points, the German DAX shed 0.18 percent down to 11,843.68 points, and the French CAC 40 fell 0.29 percent finishing the trading session at 5,006.35 points.

Russia’s indices also posted a drop – the MICEX index declined by 1.08 percent down to 1,581.84 points while the RTS index fell 1.52 percent to 868.62 points.

In the USA, the Dow Jones shed 0.23 percent getting to 17,678.23 points, the S&P 500 dropped 0.24 percent to 2,056.15 points, and the NASDAQ fell 0.27 percent down to 4,863.36 points.

The NYMEX price of futures for WTI oil for May rose by $2.07 and made $51.28 a barrel. On London’s ICE, the price of May futures for oil of mark Brent went up by $2.51 and reached $58.99 a barrel.

On the global Forex market, EUR/USD has come to a halt as expected. At this point, it’s better to take a break and not enter the market.
