Russian Gas - Ok, I've tried the 'General Forum' - to no avail.... the deal is, I am interested in buying Gazprom shares (Listed on the LSE as Gazprom Neft – ticker GAZ), however, during a search for the company – the broker at www.bankofscotlandhalifaxmarketwatch.co.uk informed me that I can’t buy shares in Gazprom.(why?)
There is also a listing for another ‘subsidiary’ of Gazprom, Listed on the LSE as ‘Oao Gaz.ads’ – ticker OGZD) Apparently all their share deals are to do with US traders offloading dollars to avoid exchange rates? Can this be the case??
I also searched on the H&L and Barclays site... there doesn’t seem to be a listing theirs' either. Can anyone assist? i.e. where, if I can, buy Gazprom shares??
As you know (if you have researched my posts), I work in this industry, and I damned if i know which broker actually sells these shares.
