December 30, 2019) A year ago, the trading turnover in the section of Russian securities of the stock market amounted to 39.19 billion rubles, in 2020 – already 76.93 billion rubles. There is no drop in turnovers compared to the previous trading days. This is also due to the fact that a significant number of investors stayed at home. The introduction of the evening session is also making a positive contribution. But the main driver is the influx of a huge number of investors.
