I think they actually halted trading in Russia after their market fell 9%.
Didn't seem to make the wider news, I've noticed the main stream media, here in Australia at least, keeps telling people everything is rosey, we're well placed, yadda yadda, the government spending money we don't have will save us all.
Then again, I've heard the usual ATS doom predictions all the time too.
However... The situation certainly hasn't gotten any better!
