Financial markets closed mainly with a rise of major indices

June 9, 2014

On the last day of the previous trading week, the world’s financial markets closed mainly with a rise of major indices, which, in turn, posted their new highs. The hike of indices was greatly influenced by the increase of US non-farm employment figures as well as by the fall of the US jobless rate.  

Trading in Europe resulted in Britain’s FTSE 100 growing 0.66 percent up to 6,858.21 points, Germany’s DAX 30 advancing 0.40 percent up to 9,987.19 points and France’s CAC 40 going up by 0.71 percent to 4,581.12 points.

On the Russian floor, the MICEX index grew 0.97 percent up to 1,484.94 points and the RTS index – 1.89 percent up to 1,359.10 points.

In the USA, the Dow Jones Industrial Average advanced 0.52 percent making 16,924.28 points, the NASDAQ Composite gained 0.59 percent reaching 4,331.40 points, and the S&P 500 BMI grew 0.46 percent up to 1,949.44 points.

The NYMEX price quotations of WTI oil futures for July rose by $0.18, up to $102.66 a barrel. On London’s ICE, the July Brent oil future went down by $0.18 and made $108.61 a barrel.

On the Forex market, EUR/USD keeps moving up towards 1.37.
