Ambiguous Background at the Trading Opening
Today, the external background at the opening of trading is quite ambiguous. After the dramatic upsurge, oil prices are falling sequentially, and signals from stock exchanges gained a good value.
The offering price of Gazprom shares is set at 220.72 RUB against the closing price as of 21. 11. 2019 254.35 RUB, which is negative for the shares.
On US stock exchanges, trading results resulted in a 0.1-0.3% drop in major indices due to the persistence of uncertainty regarding trade negotiations between the US and China. Conflicting signals do not give a clear idea of whether it is possible to count on the conclusion of the first phase of a trade agreement before the end of this year. At the same time, published macroeconomic data for the United States were positive.
