The index of the Moscow Exchange during trading on Friday updated its historical maximum, breaking the mark of 4000 points. About it informs RIA Novosti with reference to the auction data.
As the agency writes, the ruble index of the Moscow Exchange by the close of the main trading rose by 0.27% – to 4001.70 points, while the dollar RTS index (the main indicator of the Russian stock market) rose by 0.44% – to 1734.16 points. Over the past week, the Moscow Exchange Index rose 2.94%, while the RTS Index – 4.2%.
On September 1, it became known that the RTS index for the first time in the past nine years broke through the 1700-point mark. This was due to an increase in demand for Russian shares against the background of an improvement in the situation on foreign markets and an increase in oil prices.
