Russian stocks grow on oil price rise, Composite PMI increase

MOSCOW, Mar 5 (PRIME) -- The Russian stock market grew on Monday as investors were content with an oil price and Composite PMI (purchasing managers' index) increase, analysts said.

The MOEX Russia Index increased 0.90% to 2,309.53 and the RTS grew 1.42% to 1,279.51.

УAt the start of the short trading week, the Russian stock market is trying to disassociate from the external background and restore the recent loses. Both key indices were on the positive territory in spite of negative moods on foreign trading floors. Rising oil prices and local economic signals helped the benchmarks to resist the negative,Ф Igor Kovalyov, an analyst at InstaForex group of companies, said.

RussiaТs Services PMI (purchasing managers' index) grew to 56.5 in February from 55.1 and the composite index rose to 55.2 from 54.8. Investors were satisfied with the news, Kovalyov said.
