Moscow stock exchange suspends trading

Trading has been suspended on the Moscow Stock Exchange due to the unstable operation of the computer server.

The Exchange says it will resume trading using a backup after the failure of the network equipment.

The main indices were trading higher on Tuesday. The dollar-denominated RTS index was up 2.37 percent, while the ruble-traded MICEX gained 1.50 percent, as of 11:00 GMT.

Last week the exchange halted trading on all markets due to technical problems.
