The OECD report says that this year, India's economy will grow 3.4 percent and 5.1 percent in 2014 , compared with 5.7 percent and 6.6 percent, as previously thought. The organization has reduced its forecast for Brazil to 2.5 percent and 2.2 percent from 2.9 percent and 3.5 percent , respectively.

However, traders are not in a hurry to open their positions and await preliminary data analysis organization , " the American Petroleum Institute ," which will be published today .

Meanwhile, we note that the bank Citigroup today announced that predicts the price of Brent crude oil in the 4th quarter at $ 105 per barrel, and in 2014, prices are expected to reach $ 98 per barrel. The reason for reducing the forecast change in the bank called the U.S. relationship to the situation in Syria and the progress in resolving the dispute with Iran over its nuclear program. " Downward pressure on the market price of oil is increasing and this trend is unlikely to be destroyed by a shortage of supply in 2014, taking into account the current level of supply in the market ," - analysts say. The bank expects that the average price of WTI crude oil in 2014 will amount to 92.80 dollars.
