Market today. Trade at global grounds today went mainly under the influence of Friday data on US unemployment. Despite the serious improvement of the unemployment estimates, the current estimate is significantly above the target levels of Fed – as a result, the investors currently prefer believing in QE not to be cut in December, and the sum improvement of the situation in the economy serves as a reason for the exchange indices growth. Even the data on industrial production in Germany did not worsen the investors’ expectations – industrial production in Germany for October reduced 1.2% though the 0.7% adding was expected. Weakening of the indicator shows instability of the economic growth even in the Europe’s largest economy and might become a reason of expanding the stimulation program of ECB. The Russian market gained an opportunity today to partially win back the last week’s drop, which was no obstacle to the correction of the oil prices. The shares of Aeroflot still are the growth leaders due to extremely positive financial report, released last week which still allowed the stock to remain among the favorites.
