Stock Market in Russia
Russia - Stock MarketGrowth is expected to have slid sharply in the first quarter of 2019, after a solid end to last year. Consumption indicators point to moderate growth in part due to a hike in the VAT at the start of the year. Retail sales recorded the softest expansion seen in over a year in March and consumer sentiment lingered deep in pessimistic territory in Q1. Moreover, despite firmer oil prices, the external sector is expected to have disappointed after the OPEC+ production cut deal and a mild European winter hampered oil exports. That said, the economy appears to have borne the VAT hike better than expected; inflation undershot expectations in Q1, which should provide space for the Central Bank to ease rates soon to support the recovery. Available data for the second quarter has been soft with the manufacturing and services PMIs dropping in April.
