Russian stocks increase supported by strong oil prices

MOSCOW, Jan 18 (PRIME) -- The Russian stock market edged up to hit record highs on Thursday, supported by oil prices consolidating at high levels, analysts said.

The MOEX Russia Index grew 0.86% to an all-time record of 2,297.47 and the RTS rose 1.15% to 1,279.28, its highest since July 2017.

УThe Russian stock market was again in a positive trendЕ The market was backed by the Brent oil price, which stopped falling and consolidated at around $69.3-69.4 per barrel,Ф Raiffeisen Capital analyst Sofya Kirsanova said.

Crude prices were driven upwards by both the latest American Petroleum Institute (API)Тs statistics marking another decrease of the U.S. inventories, and ChinaТs advancing refining volumes, she added.
