08/11/1998 14:56:25 Russia shares end with nine percent loss

MOSCOW, Aug 11 (Reuters) - Russian shares ended with a nine percent fall on Tuesday,

suffering from worries over the country's financial crisis, sliding world markets and

soaring local debt yields, dealers said.

The RTS1-Interfax index <.IRTS> of leading shares ended with a loss of 9.11 percent

at 109.90 although trade was a slim $18.8 million.

The market has been sliding for several trading sessions, reaching levels not seen

since May 1996, with investor confidence over the anti-crisis plan of Prime Minister

Sergei Kiriyenko at a low.

A backdrop of tumbling emerging markets has dissuaded players from getting into

Russian shares despite the low prices. Russian Treasury bill prices have also fallen, a

further sign of lack of confidence in the government's plans.

The Russian Trading System (RTS), the main electronic share dealing network, earlier

suspended trade for nearly 50 minutes after the index slid more than seven percent from

its opening level, triggering circuit breakers.
