The ruble has slightly fallen, following oil during the session on Thursday
The Russian ruble is slightly falling on Thursday. This reflects the current dynamics of oil prices. Prices are being adjusted downwards after the sharp rise the previous day. This is a reaction to the decrease in oil inventories in the United States.
In the near future the Russian currency will be supported by the tax period. The market participants expect the sales increase of export revenues on October 25, which will become the peak of the tax period.
The uncertainty in the matter of the Fed’s decisions at the future meetings can counteract the strengthening of the ruble. The growing expectations of the interest rates hike on the US dollar works against the Russian currency.
