The new sanctions are not surprising, but the Russian share market since morning will remain under pressure
Major world stock indices closed on Thursday differently. A number of American companies, including Qualcomm Inc, showed a lack of accountability over the previous quarter and gave a lower-than-expected sales forecast for the current. Against this background decreased and the Russian indexes.

Against this background, the Bank of Russia reiterated that it will not return to the market with purchases of foreign currency by the end of this year, but it will remove the uncertainty and to the end of the year will reveal its plans for the timing of the resumption of purchases. New portion of us sanctions have involved a group of individuals and legal entities and will have a major impact on the currency market, although it may have short-term psychological effect. Its negative impact on the quotations of the ruble will have a rather cheapened oil. Expected daily trading range for dollar is 66.2-67.6 per RUB, for the European currency of 75.2-76.7 per RUB.
