On the Russian floor, the MICEX index grew 1 percent up to 1,394.19 points, and the RTS index gained 0.27 percent stopping at 1,039.47 points.

In the United States, the Dow Jones Industrial Average grew 0.1 percent up to 16,817.94 points, the S&P 500 dropped 0.2 percent down to 1,961.63 points whereas the NASDAQ Composite gained 0.1 percent going up to 4,485.93 points.

On the NYMEX, the price of December WTI oil futures went down by $0.01 reaching $81 a barrel. The ICE price of Brent oil futures for December delivery fell by $0.30 and made $85.83 a barrel.

On the Forex market, EUR/USD is at a standstill. Today a report on US durable goods orders is due to be released, which can serve as a fresh stimulus for investors.
