  • +A

By Tuesday night the Russian stock market remains in positive territory. Today’s trading day was non-uniform: initially, the investors were not ready to buy, and vernal background looked too mixed to give a reference point. However, later in plus out of oil, and within the market individual securities took the initiative. As a result, the index Mosberg back above 2400 points.
Further, the term here is vague: on the one hand, for shopping you need a reason, but it is not. On the other hand to sell, too, though not on anything.
