Market and company news

The dynamics on external sites and news are played out. The week that has begun will be held as non-working trading days. We forecast quite high activity, albeit lower than usual. At the same time, the dynamics are completely determined by external signals, since there are no significant events on the local market, and the previously planned release of reports can be postponed to the next week. The external background is calm. No significant statistics are scheduled to be published today. Tech companies are down on the back of corporate reports. Oil rose above $ 67. It is too early to make forecasts about the high probability of a correction in the Russian market in May.

We expect mixed dynamics. The leaders of growth will come out securities of banks and oil and gas companies. The USD / RUB pair will trade within 74.50-75.50. The benchmark for the Moscow Exchange index: a range of 3550–3600 points.
