Russia Stocks Crashing - Buy Opportunity Of 2018

The Russian stock market lost 10 percent this week. That may or may not be called a crash. Regardless, it was all over the news. InvestingHaven is on record calling this a a long term buy opportunity.

Let’s face it. Who dares to buy this Russian market after doing some research which reveals the following articles?

So what do you do after all these headlines show up, and, even worse, you click on some of them and read the bearish statements? Of course, decide for yourself that you will not buy Russia for a long time. You swear to yourself you will even not consider it for a couple of years, until the dust settles.

This is one of those textbook examples of market crashes which offer a buy opportunity more than anything else. But how will you buy if you just swore to yourself you will not touch this market, and even not look at it for a long time?

See what we meant in this article Why Investors Should Love Market Crashes, And How To Make Money From A Crash.

Looking at the ERUS ETF chart representing Russian stocks we can make the point that Russia is offering more of a buy opportunity rather than a reason to panic. Read our annotations on the chart.

As long as ERUS ETF trades above 31 points, it is a buy, simple as that. Oh, and yes, it’s a very wise practice to ignore all those articles who are there to confuse you, and hold you back from making profits, and big money out of market crashes. Mark our words.

The only really good thing to buy in Russia that's worth it is oil and gas assets. That said, why buy them when you can buy them relatively cheaply elsewhere? Saudi Arabia is investing in overseas oil in the US not Russia. Why? Russia is cheaper. Maybe they saw what happened to Exxon. Or they saw Russia shoot itself in the foot weaning Eastern Europe off its oil pipelines. The political risks of Russia are the main reason why no one wants to invest there and i totally agree.

That said, Russia's economy will do better as oil prices rises if they don't shoot themselves in the foot and make it so no one wants it. Sadly they have been known to use their oil and gas supplies as political weapons. No one likes to deal with such behavior unless they get the supply cheap, cheap, cheap. We will see what Asia says as Russia tries to peddle their reserves to them since Eastern Europe is no longer as interested in depending on them given they tried to freeze them to death to make a point.
