Russian Stocks Take Worst Hit Since 2014 on U.S. Sanctions

The world’s largest exchange-traded fund tracking Russian stocks took in a chunk of cash at the end of last week as the Trump administration unleashed sanctions on Russian billionaires and companies.

The VanEck Vectors Russia ETF, known by its ticker RSX, took in about $20 million last week, the first occurrence of continuous inflows for the fund since January, according to Bloomberg data. One investor traded 250,000 shares worth more than $5.6 million dollars on Friday, data shows.
