In Russia the MICEX index dropped 0.65 percent down to 1,440.74 points while the RTS index fell 0.35 percent down to 1,396.57 points.

Oil prices are going up slightly at this point. In anticipation of the results of the talks on Syria, investors are not in a hurry to take decisive steps. The price of October futures for the North Sea petroleum mix of mark Brent Crude Oil rose by $0.15, up to $112.78 a barrel. The price of October futures for light WTI oil lowered by $0.39, down to $108.21 a barrel.

Today EUR/USD opened with a huge upward gap. The pair’s advancement has been slowed down by the resistance level 1.3380 so far. In the upcoming days, the pair should cover the gap, i.e. go down to 1.3302.
