The share trading session opened with a growth in the majority of securities on the Russian stock market today. In the opinion of traders, the market went up slightly over the relative stability of US stock indices, which did not drop despite some bad news. However, declining oil prices remain a negative factor for Russian stocks. According to traders, a side trend is currently dominating the market, and changes in stock prices are of a speculative nature. No serious changes have occurred on the market so far, and the RTS index has settled at a level of 185 to 190 points. Brokers and investors do not show great interest in operations with Russian shares.
