Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency must always be quoted in comparison to a second currency.
So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the USD vs RUB, you should pay attention to both United States Dollar and Russian Ruble news and forecasts.
United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts
2018 has been a good year for the dollar; certainly much better than 2017, in which the world’s reserve currency lost 10 percent of its value on a trade-weighted basis. Entering the third week of November 2018, the dollar stood nearly 5 percent higher than its level on January 1st. The dollar benefitted in the month leading up to this report from Brexit uncertainty in Europe and from a collapse in the oil market, which saw its value rise against petro-currencies.
Seasonality becomes an important supporting factor for the dollar approaching year-end, and especially in November. Since 2010, the dollar has averaged trade-weighted gains of 1.8 percent in November and 0.2 percent in December.
In September, Citibank said of the dollar’s 6-12-month outlook that 3-4 percent upside was likely, followed by an 11 percent loss in the long term. It predicted EUR/USD climbing as high as $1.30, from levels in the high $1.13s at the time of writing.
Like Citi, ING remain long-term bearish on the dollar. ING isn't ruling out interventions and jawboning from Washington aimed at weakening the dollar. President Trump clearly would like a far weaker currency.
J.P. Morgan said in November that the dollar would be worth slightly more in the first half of 2019, before weakening slightly in the second half of the year.
Russian Ruble (RUB) - Market news and forecasts
At the end of October, the ruble was showing year-to-date losses of 12.5 percent and 6.5 percent against the dollar and euro respectively.
Although hardly optimistic for those holding Russian currency, the aforementioned losses mark considerable strength on mid-September rates, which preceded the surprise interest rate hike on September 14th by the Russian central bank (rates were lifted to 7.5 percent). Prior to the hike, the ruble had slipped to 2-1/2-year lows. In October, the central bank warned businesses of further tightening ahead, which would be good for the ruble.
Ruble weakness this year has been driven by central bank buying of foreign currencies for the purposes of bolstering Russia’s FX reserves – an act that necessitates selling large amounts of rubles, which weighs on valuations. Equally, US sanctions on Russia and the emerging market currency crises in Argentina and Turkey have played a part.
