Russian stocks grow due to modestly positive mood, rising crude

MOSCOW, Mar 15 (PRIME) -- The Russian stock market consolidated in the first half of the day, but rallied later on Friday following the crude price dynamics, analysts said.

The MOEX Russia Index grew 0.77% to 2,476.73 and the RTS rose 1.25% to 1,196.75.

УThe external background defined the positive sentiment on the domestic market. China and the U.S. continue talks at the minister level which encourages investors. The (Brent) oil price failed to consolidate above U.S. $67 per barrel to hurt Russian oil companiesТ stocks,Ф Otkritie Broker analyst Andrei Kochetkov said.

BCS Broker expert Dmitry Babin said that global demand for risky assets has increased in light of the Brexit deal delay. The Russian market consolidated in the first part of the session to jump steeply later in the day following positive crude dynamics. †
