Russian stocks drop amid falling oil, pessimism on global floors

MOSCOW, Oct 8 (PRIME) -- Russian stocks decreased on Tuesday pressured by falling oil prices, negative moods on global floors, with growing concerns about the U.S.ЦChina talks, and the rubleТs depreciation, analysts said.

The MOEX Russia Index fell 0.42% to 2,707.89 and the RTS Index decreased 1.05% to 1,306.39.

УThe MOEX Russia Index and the RTS Index remained in minus by the end of trading on Tuesday having received no support from the foreign background,Ф Veles Capital analyst Yelena Kozhukhova said.

Trading on the U.S. stock floors started with a decline of three main indices, which lost around 1% by the end of trading in Russia. Investors are worried that the next round of trade talks with China, which will start on Thursday, will not bring results. Trading on European floors was on a downbeat note.

Oil prices remained in minus by the evening, but were losing less than 0.5% amid investorsТ doubts about prospects of the global economy development and demand for oil, Kozhukhova said.

Otkritie Broker analyst Andrei Kochetkov said the Russian stock market was pressured by the negative foreign background. УDoubts about a positive outcome of the U.S.ЦChina trade talks are growing. In Europe, expectations that the U.K. will leave the E.U. without an agreement are intensifying,Ф he said.

Gold producer Polymetal was among growth leaders, rising by 2.84%, Kozhukhova said. Coal producer Raspadskaya added 2.35% after reporting that its net profit rose almost 50% on the year to 9 billion rubles in JanuaryЦSeptember, as calculated under Russian Accounting Standards (RAS).

Retailer Magnit and power holding Inter RAO were among outsiders, losing 1.86% and 1.24%, respectively. †
