    Why is USD/RUB unavailable to trade?


    The ruble is currently unavailable to trade with FOREX.com (and many other brokerages) because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

    The war against Ukraine that Russia began in February 2022 prompted a slew of sanctions against Russia by major nations and groups including the US, EU, UK, Japan, Canada, and many others. These sanctions include trade bans on Russian exports and imports, as well as transactions with Russia’s central bank. The exchange of currencies, such as US dollars to Russian rubles and euros to rubles, has also been blocked.

    Because of these sanctions, the value of the ruble has become disconnected between its quote inside Russia and the quote outside of Russia by foreign central banks. This disparity creates extreme volatility in ruble pairs, especially USD/RUB, increased spreads, and the risk of gapping when trading RUB with major currencies like USD and EUR.

    Within a few days of Russia’s invasion, the ruble was blocked from the SWIFT network, a global system used by major banks and financial institutions to transfer money. This removal prevents Russia from making financial transactions with other countries and, along with the numerous other sanctions, has threatened to bring about the collapse of the Russian currency.
