In the USA, the Dow Jones index climbed up by 0.03 percent to 16,025.53 points, the S&P gained 0.18 percent up to 1,808.37 points, and the NASDAQ grew 0.15 percent up to 4,068.75 points.

On the commodity market, the price of January futures for the North Sea petroleum mix of mark Brent Crude Oil dropped by $2.22, down to $109.39 a barrel. The price of January futures for light WTI oil lowered by $0.31, down to $97.34 a barrel.
