Russian stocks contract after MondayТs oil price slump

MOSCOW, Mar 10 (PRIME) -- Russian stocks dropped on Tuesday following MondayТs slump of oil prices and global floors after OPEC+ failure to reach a consensus, but managed to win back part of the intraday losses, analysts said. †

The MOEX Russia Index fell 8.11% to 2,498.94 and the RTS dropped 13.02% to 1,094.18.

УThe MOEX Russia Index and the RTS Index remained in a deep minus by the end of trading, although made attempts to retreat from the lows,Ф Veles Capital analyst Yelena Kozhukhova said. The indices fell to the lows of January 2019 at 2,435 points at the MOEX Russia Index and the lows of December 2018 at 1,055 points at the RTS Index, and then managed to win back part of the lost positions, the analyst said. †

Trading on the U.S. stock floors started with an increase of three main indices, which were adding around 1.2Ц1.8% by the end of the Russian session. Moderately negative moods prevailed on European floors.

Brent and WTI oil quotations were adding around 6% by the end of Tuesday recovering from MondayТs drop.

Oil and gas producer Surgutneftegas was among growth leaders, with its preferred shares rising 11.4% supported by the rubleТs depreciation, as the company has a sufficient currency liquidity stock, Freedom Finance analyst Valery Yemelyanov said.

Oil producers were among outsiders, with Lukoil dropping 18.65% and Tatneft losing 19.51%.
