Some significant anomalies as in terms of trading volumes, and the dynamics of quotations 15 August was not noticed.

Probably, there are no serious reasons for sales yet.

Russian investors, who will receive shares instead of receipts, there is no great need to immediately sell them at low prices: quotes of many issuers are near multi-year lows. Besides, the conversion process itself, probably, will last for weeks, which will reduce the load on intraday trading. For example, conversion of Gazprom's depositary receipts into shares can be tentatively completed only in September this year.

Foreign investors from "friendly" countries also have no good reason to sell Russian bonds, especially against the background of the gradual recovery of the Russian economy. Their risks in our market are much lower compared to colleagues from "unfriendly" countries.. Besides, The Central Bank's measures for non-residents provide for a six-month "quarantine" for purchased assets in a special account, therefore, simply selling securities and running away will still not work..

Probably, investors were afraid of innovations in vain – as you can see, they are unlikely to bring down quotes intraday, and in the long term, the easing of restrictions seems to be a rather positive factor for the domestic stock market.. The more investors will have access to the Russian stock market and the wider the tools available to them, the higher the chance, that trading volumes on the Moscow Stock Exchange will at least approach the pre-crisis levels. Although this is unlikely to happen anytime soon..
