Risk sentiment weakens as Joe Biden meets the EU leaders today. They are expected to announce new sanctions against Russia in the coming hours. There is a possibility of a ban on Russian oil imports to Europe. Uncertainties about Russian oil injects volatility in oil trading, and Russia now asks rubles in exchange of its energy and gas. Meanwhile, Russian market partially opens today, after but only 33 Russian company shares are allowed to trade for a shortened four-hour. The MOEX was up in the first hour of trading, but don’t be fooled by the early rally, because foreigners won’t allowed to sell their stake until April 1st, and short-selling is also banned. And because most of the market was made up of international investors, we will not get a clear picture of the valuations immediately. With the escalating tensions into today’s Europe – Biden meeting, the dollar firmed against major peers. The EURUSD slipped below the 1.10 mark again and gold tests the $1950 offers.
