Forecasts of specialists on the further development of the Russian stock market vary significantly. The situation on the RTS and MICEX exchanges has become unpredictable and uneven recently and it seems that a lot of traders who were expecting a rise in shares have started selling a part of their portfolios. This testifies that market participants are uncertain about the resumption of a rise in the near future. However, the most important thing that scares investors is the crisis situation on world exchanges. On the other hand, the situation in the Russian economy is rather optimistic at present and its positive tendencies are preventing the Russian stock market from a serious plummet. In view of this, prices shares on Russian exchanges are expected to remain almost unchanged for a rather long time.
