“The dominant story today is a more optimistic mood than before in the negotiations between Russia and Ukraine,” the Wall Street Journal newspaper quotes the opinion of Edward Park, investment manager at Brooks Macdonald. – At the end of last week, expectations were very low. Of course, there are risks of short-term volatility spikes if negotiations stop or go in the wrong direction.”
The anti-Russian sanctions imposed by the United States and a number of its allies have previously led to an increase in energy prices, gasoline, and also affected global stock markets.
