Many analysts believe the current price movement of Russia's Moex index is not reflecting the actual market sentiment. Russian government has adapted the following measure to maintain its stability.Commando
1. the government announced that as much as $10 billion from the National Wellbeing Fund may be spent to buy battered local stocks.
2. the government will prevent foreigners from exiting local equities.
3. the government will ban short selling.
Analyst's point of view
Russia effectively closed up a free-flowing market, activity will be muted and true price discovery won't occur.

local investors could flock to Russian equities as a hedge against inflation, which has surged near levels unseen since the government's debt default in 1998.
Iskander Lutsko, chief investment strategist at ITI Capital in Moscow said
the Moscow Exchange said the share of individual investors in Thursday's trading volume was 58%.
History
Warren Buffett avoids making equity investment in Russia because he has experienced threats of violence and asset seizure there. Buffett remembered trying to exit from the region. "They said if we sent in the people to get out the equipment, not only would the equipment not get out, but the people wouldn't get out," he said. Charlie Munger also underlined his concern of Russia during Daily Journal's annual meeting this month.
