The Russian MICEX index didn’t alter and made 1,486.30 points whereas the RTS index advanced 0.76 percent up to 1,369.10 points.

In the USA, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.06 percent down to 16,937 points, the NASDAQ shed 0.01 percent down to 4,368 points, and the S&P 500 BMI went down by 0.1 percent to 1,962 points.

On the IСE Futures Europe, the price of Brent oil lowered by $0.69 and made $114.12 a barrel. The NYMEX price of WTI oil went down by $0.66 and reached $106.17 a barrel.

On the Forex market, EUR/USD is staying at the same level so far.
