The ruble against world currencies continued to fall. In the course of trading on Thursday, August 23, the dollar rose to 68,918 ruble, and the Euro approached the level of 80 rubles, bargaining at the level 79,633 rubles per unit European currency. This is evidenced by the auction.
Of 12:15 Moscow time the Russian currency has played a bit position. The dollar was up one percent and cost 68,713 ruble and the Euro climbed 0.61 percent, to $ 79,383 of the ruble.
The Russian currency continues to be pressured by several factors: new U.S. sanctions, which risks scaring overseas investors exiting Russian assets; the fall of emerging markets caused by U.S. sanctions against Turkey, and the resumption of the Russian authorities, purchases of foreign currency.
The exchange rate does not help even high oil prices. Futures for the supply of a barrel of Brent crude oil at London exchange trading at 74,57 dollar, losing for the trading day 0,282 per cent. However, with the collapse of the Russian currency, the ruble cost of a barrel of oil has set an absolute record.
