Russian Trading System



The Russian Trading System is a stock market established in 1995 in Moscow, consolidating various regional trading floors into one exchange. Originally RTS was modelled on NASDAQ's trading and settlement software; in 1998 the exchange went on line with its own in-house system. Initially created as a non-profit organization, at the moment RTS is in the process of reorganization: it is being transformed into a joint-stock company. RTS data is distributed world-wide through major financial information vendors such as Reuters.

Russia's stock market surged 686 percent from 2001 through 2005 - and another 66 percent 2006. [1] The RTS Stock Exchange markets are open from 10:30 a.m. till 6:00 p.m. Moscow time (GMT+3). [2]

RTS Indexes

The RTS Stock Exchange calculates and publishes 9 indexes: RTS Index, RTS-2 Index, and 7 sectoral indexes. The RTS Index and the RTS-2 Index are calculated using two different lists of stocks.

The RTS Index, RTSI, the official Exchange indicator, first calculated on September 1, 1995, is similar in function to the Dow Jones Average in New York City. RTSI is computed on thirty-minute intervals using real-time prices of the 50 most liquid Russian stocks listed on the Exchange and is relayed to the RTS Web site, RTS workstations and news agencies. The constituent list of stocks is reviewed every 3 months.

The RTS-2 Index is calculated based on the list of 69 second-tier stocks.
