Amid a considerable decrease in oil prices, the trade on the Russian stock market opened lower after the holidays. First of all it concerns shares of oil companies. In particular, LUKoil securities dropped by 2.6 percent, YUKOS went down by 1.86 percent and Sibneft eased back by 2.84 percent in the first minutes of the trade at MICEX.

Decreasing futures of US stock indices might also have negatively influenced the market. However, the oil factor is the most important factor for the market at present, specialists stress.
