USD and RUB in the Markets

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the USD vs RUB, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

US Dollar (USD)

Growing fears of the coronavirus outbreak has moved the market into safer currencies such as the USD and away from AUD, NZD and CAD.

The US dollar held its value in 2019 despite a serious escalation in US-China trade tensions, mainly because the greenback is still considered a safer currency to own than most others.

At its October meeting the Federal Reserve cut the target range for the federal funds rate to 1.5-1.75 percent, the third rate cut so far this year, amid soft inflation indicators and general worries about the economy. However the central bank also signaled a pause in the easing cycle.

Taking the blame for the economic downturn is US President Donald Trump, whose trade war policies have set a ball rolling that could wipe $455bn from global output according to the IMF.

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.


How to get Best USD to RUB Exchange Rates

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).

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.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
