Market Roundup Russian benchmarks turned bearish Thursday, snapping several days of gains on weak Western earnings reports, with the RTS Index dropping 0.48% and the MICEX Index shedding 1.56%. Most O&G plays moved higher on retreating oil prices, as Gazprom lost 2.2%, Rosneft inched up 0.3% and Lukoil eased 0.7%. Ambiguous financials released by major US banks exerted an adverse impact on domestic financial issuers, with Sberbank plunging 4.1% and Bank VTB sinking 3.9%. Steels, except for NLMK (a 3.9% surge), closed in stride with the market, with MMK falling 2.6% and Severstal dipping 0.9%. American indices closed in positive territory Thursday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average adding 0.5%. Rising oil prices were the primary upside driver, which, in turn, pushed up demand for energy stocks.
