The US dollar and euro have slightly risen at the start of the session
On Tuesday the US currency and the euro have slightly grown at the start of the trading session at the Moscow stock exchange. The ruble has slightly fallen, following the oil after the renewal of maximum marks almost over a year.
The first transactions on the dollar were carried out within 62,1-62,22 rubles. On the average, the rate became equal to 62.185 rubles for the first a minute and a half. At the start of the session the euro was 69.15 rubles. The currency basket has increased by 16 kopecks, amounting to 65.32 rubles.
At the same time the American currency was about 20 kopecks below the current official exchange rate. The euro was 58 kopecks above the current official exchange rate.
Earlier, the US dollar and euro were falling during the session to the lowest point almost over 1 year. The dollar reached the mark of 61.82 rubles; the euro was able to grow up to 68.9925 rubles / EUR due to the increase in global oil prices. An analyst at “Interfax-CEA” notes that insignificant fall of the Russian currency at the start of the Tuesday’s session is a correction after the previous growth.
Oil is sagging on Tuesday after the price has increased to the yearly high at the beginning of the week. According to experts, this happens despite the fact that the “bullish” sentiment is prevalent on the market. To the beginning of the day the futures contracts for Brent oil have fallen by 0.5% amounting to $ 52.9 per barrel on the London Stock Exchange.
