At a crucial time for the Russian stock market, just as it recovers from its rout caused by tanking oil prices in recent weeks, Instaforex has announced a new tool designed to help traders interested in stocks trading on the Moscow Exchange.
At a time when increasingly diversified brokerages are more likely to secure more sustained trading volumes, the company is rolling out a relatively popular tool for monitoring stock markets.
The solution by Instaforex is named Market Map and is essentially a heat map of the Russian stock market, displaying in different boxes major market movers and the most traded stocks in the Moscow Exchange within a given session.

The tool has become widely popular in recent years, but no major providers have been focused on the Moscow Exchange when delivering it. The map is generated based on data from trading sessions provided by a 15-minute delayed feed from the Moscow Exchange.
There are a number of sectors specific to the Russian stock market – oil and gas, metals, finance, energy, telecommunication, chemistry and petrochemistry, transportation and machinery. Each rectangle on the heat map corresponds to a company, while the color represents the performance of the stock on the given trading day.
Data is available on all companies via a search bar on the right of the diagram.
Mousing over the different sectors on the heat map shows a pop-up window containing a chart of the company’s stock prices, trading volumes on the Moscow Exchange and the firm’s market cap. Data is also available for different sectors.
