Interesting facts

The current USD/RUB price tells you how many Russian rubles it would take to purchase a single US dollar. The ruble has been used in Russia since the 14th century, meaning it has outlasted both the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union. However, the modern currency RUB only came into being in 1998 when the Russian government devalued the ruble ahead of the Russian financial crisis. USD/RUB is an exotic currency pair, with RUB sitting outside of the ten most-traded currencies in the world.

Price drivers

USD and RUB are both free-floating currencies, so the pair’s price is driven by market supply and demand.

The US dollar tends to move based on economic data that may influence Federal Reserve monetary policy, such as the monthly non-farm payrolls employment report and GDP figures. Russia is a major oil producer, so the ruble can rise and fall due to oil price volatility, although geopolitics also plays a key role in its price action.
