In Russia, the MICEX index was up by 1.18 percent making 1,465.70 points while the RTS index grew 1.54 percent up to 1,412.08 points.

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.

The EUR/USD pair reached 1.3760 and may slow down now. It’s not recommended to open any positions at this point.
