Reduced Group of Markets on the Up

February 18, 2014

Yesterday the world’s financial markets closed predominantly on the rise. In Europe, the British FTSE 100 grew 1.09 percent stopping at 6,736 points, Germany’s DAX dropped 0.06 percent down to 9,656.76 points, and the French CAC 40 fell 0.11 percent down to 4,335.17 points.

In Russia, the MICEX index advanced 0.76 percent up to 1,507.49 points and the RTS index – 0.31 percent up to 1,347.41 points.

There was no trading on US markets due to Presidents Day. The NYMEX was shut for the same reason.

On London’s ICE, the price of Brent oil rose by $0.10 and made $109.18 a barrel.

The EUR/USD pair keeps moving within the triangle bounds. Nevertheless, it may go up to 1.3750.
