Russian stocks close mixed amid careful external background

MOSCOW, Mar 28 (PRIME) -- The Russian stock market consolidated during the day and closed mixed on Tuesday amid careful sentiments on foreign stock exchanges and weakening risk appetites, analysts said.

The MOEX Russia Index grew 0.06% to 2,442.19 and the RTS decreased 0.21% to 999.83.

УThe Russian stock market has not demonstrated significant changes and bounced back from the dayТs peaks,Ф Veles Broker analyst Yelena Kozhukhova said.

She also said that cautious sentiments restored on foreign bourses amid mounting threats of possible global recession, but the nearest Brent oil futures stayed in the positive territory, rising by 0.5% close to the resistance line of U.S. $79.5 per barrel.

Energy Minister Nikolai Shulginov expects RussiaТs coal production to remain flat on the year in 2023 after a fall at the beginning of the year, which supported both ordinary and preferred shares of metals and mining group Mechel that surged by 4.89% and 2.47%, respectively, Kozhukhova said.

Precious metals miners Polymetal International and Polyus edged up due to weakening of the global appetite for risk and a rise of gold prices to $1,970 per ounce, she also said.

Management company Alfa-CapitalТs senior trader Vladislav Silayev said that the financial sector was among the best performers, whereas energy and metal stocks underperformed.
