The RTS Index "Russia Trading System" (abbreviated: RTSI, Russian: Индекс РТС) is a free-float capitalization-weighted index of 50 Russian stocks traded on the Moscow Exchange, calculated in the US dollars. The list of stocks is reviewed every three months.
The RTS Index value is calculated in a real-time mode. The index was introduced on September 1, 1995 with a base value of 100. The RTSI peaked on 19 May 2008 at 2,498.10 points, and fell to 492.59 on 23 January 2009; on 29 December 2017 the RTS Index closed at 1,154.43.
