Russian stocks rise following global floors, crude prices

MOSCOW, Oct 9 (PRIME) -- The Russian stock market edged up on Wednesday thanks to a positive global environment with foreign stock exchanges and crude trading higher, analysts said.

The MOEX Russia Index grew 0.19% to 2,713.02 and the RTS rose 0.85% to 1,317.48.

УThe Russian stock market is ignoring risks of a possible failure of trade negotiations between the U.S. and China mainly thanks to statements of the Federal Reserve Chair Jerome PowellЕ Purchases also prevail in Europe, which creates a positive external background,Ф Otkritie Broker analyst Andrei Kochetkov said.

Veles Broker analyst Yelena Kozhukhova said that the major U.S. benchmarks added some 0.5Ц0.8% by the end of the trading session in Russia after China had announced its readiness to strike a partial trade agreement with the U.S. if no import duties are introduced on October 15.

Crude prices were seen around 1% higher, she added.

Kochetkov also said that independent gas producer Novatek, steelmaker Novolipetsk Steel (NLMK) and gold producer Polyus slid as they were trading ex-dividend, but the stocks did not influence the domestic market much.

Kozhukhova said that mobile operator MTS was among the top performers surging 2.97% to 268.65 rubles on the news the company had canceled delisting from the New York Stock Exchange.
