GBP and RUB in the Markets
When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the GBP vs RUB, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.
British Pound Sterling (GBP)
On October 11 the pound had a large one-day rise against the Euro with signs that the EU and UK could still get a Brexit deal ahead of the October 31 deadline. Pound valuations will continue to fluctuate based on Brexit No-deal, Deal and Remain probabilities. No-deal prospects may increase if, as is widely expected, ardent Brexiteer Boris Johnson becomes the UK’s next prime minister. However, some banks argue that Johnson’s appointment would make little difference to no-deal or remain probabilities.
The pound is unlikely to receive much in the way of meaningful respite until November, analysts say, when hopefully the UK-EU Brexit arrangement, or lack thereof, is known (Boris Johnson insists that the UK will not seek any further Article 50 extensions beyond the October-31 deadline).
The pound would be doing far worse if it weren't receiving some support from the Bank of England which, surprisingly, is the only major central bank still considering higher interest rates in 2019.
By some margin, the pound was the worst-performing major currency in the second quarter. It slipped in late June to multi-month lows against a number of important currencies, including the Australian dollar, New Zealand dollar, euro, Canadian dollar and Swiss franc.

Russian Ruble (RUB)
The ruble has appreciated steadily against the US dollar (65.2), euro (73.05) and Australian dollar (45.6) in 2019. Against those three currencies, in early May, the ruble was worth 7 percent more, on average, than it was at the start of the year.
Recent strength makes a change from last year — a year of steady depreciation for the ruble (it lost 17 percent of its value against USD). US Sanctions played a part in last year’s weakness, as did a year-end collapse in the oil price and foreign currency buying by Russia’s central bank.
Among factors supporting the ruble this year has been a thriving energy market: oil is nearly 50 percent higher per barrel than rates at Christmas time.
In May, TradingEconomics.com was predicting a slightly weaker ruble in a year’s time, with USD/RUB forecast in May 2020 at 67.5 and AUD/RUB at 46.5.
Why can't I just get the GBP/RUB market rate I see online or in the media?
The mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news. It is actually just the half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the GBP / RUB was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.
All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate). Some providers such as Transferwise will quote you the mid-rate (or close to) and charge a separate percentage fee.
Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however the transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.
