Market News Summary

The Russian ruble rose during trading yesterday, Thursday, to its highest level in more than a month, continuing its gains for the fifth consecutive session. This was due to oil prices stabilizing after a recent decline, which somewhat reduced the impact of the decline in the supply of foreign currencies in Russia. The ruble rose by 1.6% against the dollar, to 77.94, its highest level since April 3rd.

In contrast, European stock indices fell at the close of trading on Thursday. This was due to the markets’ assessment of the monetary policy decisions taken by global central banks.

The European Central Bank (ECB) raised interest rates by 25 basis points to 3.25% yesterday, as expected, and hinted that further monetary tightening may be necessary to curb inflation.

The central bank of the twenty countries that share the euro currency also raised interest rates by a total of 375 basis points since last July, which is the fastest pace of monetary tightening it has implemented. However, it made it clear that further moves are likely given the mounting pressures related to salaries and prices.
