Moscow Exchange (MOEX)

The Moscow Exchange (MOEX) is the product of a merger between the Moscow Interbank Currency Exchange (MICEX) and the Russian Trading System Stock Exchange (RTS).

Contracts traded on the Moscow Exchange include stocks, bonds, investment fund shares, options and futures. In addition to classic forex currency pairs, the exchange facilitates trading in a number of uncommon forex currency pairs, such as the TRY/RUB currency pair launched in early 2018. Commodities are also traded on the exchange.

MOEX is one of the leading exchanges in the Russian Federation. Around 200 financial services providers, including divisions of UBS and Credit Suisse, are members of the Moscow Exchange and close to 80 companies are listed on the exchange, some of which operate globally.

The performance of the exchange is indicated by its MICEX index (ruble-denominated) and RTS index (US$-denominated).
