Respite after Active Growth

April 17, 2015

Yesterday the world’s financial markets closed mixed. In Europe, there remains a sense of uncertainty and apprehension regarding Greece’s debt – Greece and its lenders haven’t yet come to an agreement about a number of key reform points. Thursday’s trading resulted in the FTSE falling 0.51 percent to 7,060.45 points, the DAX 30 dropping 1.9 percent down to 11,998.86 points and CAC 40 shedding 0.57 percent down to 5,224.49 points.

In Russia, the MICEX index added 0.54 percent reaching 1,686.79 points, and the RTS index closed with a 0.88 percent rise getting to 1,061.60 points.

In the United States, the Dow Jones fell 0.04 percent to 18,105.77 points, the S&P 500 shed 0.08 percent down to 2,104.99 points and the NASDAQ – 0.06 percent down to 5,007.79 points.

The NYMEX cost of May WTI oil futures went up by $0.32 and made $56.71 a barrel. On London’s ICE, the price of Brent oil futures for May rose by $0.66 and reached $63.98 a barrel.

On the Forex market, EUR/USD displayed a slight rise. However, the situation hasn’t changed much since yesterday. We’re still waiting for signals.
