Russian stocks trade mixed, close higher on positive stat data

MOSCOW, Apr 13 (PRIME) -- The Russian stock market spent the day in uncertain dynamics, but managed to close in the positive territory on Thursday thanks to the support of macroeconomic data, analysts said.

The MOEX Russia Index grew 0.23% to 2,544.28 and the RTS increased 0.77% to 982.94.

УMixed dynamics were seen on the Russian stocks market during the day on Thursday. Neither the buyers nor the sellers demonstrated no high activity,Ф Freedom Finance GlobalТs Senior Analyst Natalya Milchakova said.

Local purchases were supported by the March data showing significant growth of ChinaТs energy imports including imports of hydrocarbons from Russia, and the market was also supported by the release of the March data by the Federal State Statistics Service indicating a slowdown of the annual inflation to 3.5%, Milchakova said.

However, bullsТ optimism was constrained by the threat of the global economic recession, she added.

Veles Broker analyst Yelena Kozhukhova said that the ruble section of the Russian stock market was pressured by profit taking in some shares.

Kozhukhova also said that the shares of Bank St. Petersburg jumped by 6.66% without any evident news.

She added that oil and gas pipe maker TMK hit record high since September 2021 on expectation of the board of directorsТ decision on 2022 dividends.
