Methods. For the study, I used a correlation analysis, and the event study and descriptive approaches. The study time-frame from 2002 to 2019 is divided into four periods.
Results. The article determines that the structure of internal economic factors influencing the Russian stock market gets transformed under the impact of macroeconomic shocks.

The practical significance of the study lies in the possibility of using its results to develop measures to regulate the stock market depending on economic conditions and instruments of impact, as the structure of economic factors in the development of the stock market changes during periods of growth and crisis.
