The price of Brent crude fell by 0.8% last week, while price of WTI crude oil rose by less than 0.1%. During trading on Friday evening, there was an increase in the fall in oil prices amid falling stock markets and rising bond prices caused by concerns about a slowdown in the global economy. By 18:07 Moscow time, Brent crude was trading at the level of 66 dollars 60 cents a barrel. Its value fell by 1.86%. WTI crude oil fell 2.28% to 58 dollars 60 cents a barrel. On Friday, the yield on long-term government bonds was lower than the yield on short bonds for the first time since 2007.
