Russian stocks increase moderately on high oil prices

MOSCOW, Jan 10 (PRIME) -- The Russian stock market grew moderately on Wednesday supported by high oil prices but pressurized by investorsТ desire to take profit, analysts said.

The MOEX Russia Index rose 0.31% to 2,232.27 and the RTS grew 0.45% to 1,234.64.

УRussian stock market indices have not managed to continue yesterdayТs rally due to deterioration of moods of foreign investors who decided to take profit,Ф InstaForex analyst Igor Kovalyov said.

Yelena Kozhukhova, an analyst at Veles Broker, said that the U.S. and European trading sessions saw a negative trend.

In the evening, the Russian indices started to rise after a decrease earlier in the day, Kozhukhova said.

According to Kovalyov, high oil prices and an improvement of RussiaТs 2018 and 2019 gross domestic product (GDP) outlook by the World Bank limited the negative trend on the Russian market.

The Brent price rose 0.2% to U.S. $68.96 as of 7:14 p.m. Moscow time.
