Forecasts and recommendations

The MICEX index continues to move to the next target — the 1800-1810 range of items to test the February highs of late November (1840-1870 points), notes Eugene Loktionov from PSB. “In our opinion, this path will not be sustained, less significant sector start to look poorly, and the market looks a bit overheated,” he says.

Accordingly, the least significant portion of negativity could lead to rollback, increasing the risk of share ownership at the beginning of February, the analyst believes. This means that the market can continue to grow on the “chips” that have the potential for development growth, and less important news paper without support — look worse than the market, he adds.

“The most important indicator of the Russian stock market remains the ruble price for oil Urals — after reaching the zone 2500-2600 rubles per barrel, in our opinion, well growing oil and gas sector could experience a wave of profit-taking,” says Loktionov.

The main risks for the stock market and oil on Monday will be linked to the publication on the morning of 1 February, data on the PMI indices in industry of China in January, according to analysts “Veles the Capital”.

The decision of the state Council of China on capacity reduction in the steel industry, 150 million tonnes could have a negative impact on expectations regarding business activity in the industry that have a negative impact on stock indices and prices of raw materials, they say.
