MOSCOW. Feb 14 (Interfax) - The Russian stock market's optimistic attitude turned sour on Thursday after the eurozone published weak GDP data for Q4 2012; decent U.S. labor market statistics were unable to fix its downward turn.

VTB (RTS: VTBR) performed better than the market, up 1.5% for the day.
Second-tier losers included IDGC Holding (-3.3%), OGK-5 (RTS: OGKE) (-3%), NLMK (RTS: NLMK) (-2.3%) and TGK-9 (RTS: TGKI) (-2.2%).
Second-tier winners were VSMPO-Avisma (RTS: VSMO) (+0.5%), TGK-2 (RTS: TGKB) (+0.5%) and Severstal (RTS: CHMF) (+0.4%).
Combined trading volume on the main Moscow Exchange market for the day came to 51.088 billion rubles (15.396 billion of which in ordinary Sberbank shares, and 9.596 billion of which in VTB shares). In the Standard sector it was $80.4 million, and in the Classica sector - $4.33 million.
