Russian stocks decrease discouraged by global negativity

MOSCOW, May 22 (PRIME) -- The Russian stock market edged down on Friday as it was pressured by an ultimately negative foreign background, analysts said.

The MOEX Russia Index fell 0.34% to 2,709.38 and the RTS contracted 1.48% to 1,188.47.

УA worsening external background continued to affect the domestic market. China abandoned its gross domestic product (GDP) goal for this year. The U.S. is preparing bills, which may trigger another wave of its tensions with Beijing,Ф Otkritie Broker analyst Andrei Kochetkov said.

УCrude felt uncertain and lost part of its gains obtained in the previous six sessions. The Economic Development Ministry sees RussiaТs GPD falling over 9% in AprilЦJune, and the central bank projects an 8% fall,Ф he added.

Natural resources miners including metals giant Norilsk Nickel, independent gas producer Novatek and oil company Bashneft were again among the worst performing stocks, Kochetkov also said, adding that banks were additionally pressured by negative dividends expectations.

Veles Broker analyst Yelena Kozhukhova said that power producer Inter RAO outperformed the market adding 2.44% on a sound financial report for JanuaryЦMarch demonstrating an 11.1% rise in the net profit.
