On the Russian floor, the MICEX index fell 0.67 percent down to 1,464.76 points and the RTS index – 0.93 percent down to 1,245.53 points.

In the USA, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 0.15 percent down to 17,111.42 points, the Standard & Poor's 500 shed 0.31 percent closing at 2,000.54 points whereas the NASDAQ Composite advanced 0.20 percent up to 4,592.29 points.
