The largest Russian equity ETF was down moderately in early-afternoon action Tuesday, after slumping by as much as 10% at the open, then jumping as much as 7% above Monday's close before erasing that gain. The Market Vectors Russia ETF shed 1.7% at last check. The U.S. oil benchmark and U.S. stocks also are trading up from their session lows.
