The growth of the ruble contributes to the recovery of demand for risky assets and positive dynamics of oil.
The ascent of stock markets once again are expectations of progress in trade negotiations, as well as the idea that the world’s Central banks will ease policy to support economic growth in light of the intensifying trade disputes.
Oil quickly managed to get back above the $ 60 per barrel Brent. In addition, the hopes for growth were supported by the representative of Saudi Arabia’s intention to “maintain in force the agreements on quotas and adjust them during the second half of the year, if required.”
