Russia - Stock Market

A preliminary estimate revealed that growth picked up in the second quarter, but still remained sluggish. Although a breakdown is not yet available, a marked upturn in the industrial sector appears to have spearheaded the acceleration. This more than offset weaker retail trade growth, which reflected softer private consumption despite a fall in the unemployment rate. Externally, merchandise exports slumped for the first time in nearly three years in Q2, weighed on by OPEC+ oil production restrictions. Early data for the third quarter is mixed. In July, economic activity accelerated, and both the manufacturing and services PMIs improved. That said, lower crude prices in July–August, coupled with fresh U.S. sanctions announced in early August, are likely to cap growth in the quarter. Meanwhile, on 9 August, Fitch Ratings upgraded Russia’s credit rating to BBB from BBB-, with a stable outlook, citing solid macroeconomic fundamentals and resilience to external shocks.
