The ruble for today support factors are a slight weakening of the US dollar in the global currency market right now, investors do not need the dollar as a safe asset, as minor statistics were no longer published – and a rebound in oil.
Commodity market on Monday afternoon full of enthusiasm and a desire to buy. The barrel of Brent rises in price on 1% and $60,91. Friday’s statistics from Baker Hughes, reflecting a new wave of reduction of the number of drilling rigs in the U.S. and Canada, perceived by the market as a confident bullish catalyst that it is logical. At the same time investors continue to analyze the fact of decline in the U.S. daily oil production from the historic high of 11.7 million barrels per day to 11.6 million barrels a day.
