The MICEX 10 Index (Russian: Индекс ММВБ10) is an unweighted price index that tracks the ten most liquid Russian stocks listed on MICEX-RTS in Moscow, Russia. Composition of the index is assessed quarterly following the liquidity criterion.[1] Components are assigned equal weight.

Calculation[edit]

The index is the arithmetic average of the change of prices between a time t and a base time 0, which is the end of the preceding quarter. The formula is:

\text{MICEX10} = \frac {k}{10}\cdot\sum\limits_{i=1}^{10}\left(\frac {P_{i}}{P^0_i}\right)

where P_{i} is the price of the component stock i at time t, P^0_i is the price of the component stock i at the end of previous quarter, and k is the adjustment coefficient.[2]
