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.

On London’s ICE Futures, October Brent oil futures went down by $0.62 reaching $100.20 a barrel. On the New York Mercantile Exchange, the price of October WTI oil futures got lower by $0.63 stopping at $92.66 a barrel.

On the global currency market, EUR/USD is very near 1.2850 already. After this, the pair should start an upward correction.
