    Putin Erases the Truth About the Ruble

    The new law prohibits currency-exchange offices from displaying rates to passersby. In 1937, Josef Stalin established a full state monopoly on currency operations in the Soviet Union. Exchanging currency at (black) market rates was a crime. It was only on Nov. 15, 1991, a little more than a month before the Soviet Union was gone, that the prohibition was lifted, as President Boris Yeltsin legalized all exchange operations and set off a forex mania.

    State Duma Chairman: Russian Stablecoin Would Be Equivalent to Fiat Ruble in ‘Digital Space’

    Geopolitical, Domestic Events Drive Higher-Risk Currencies Sharply Lower

    The New Zealand Dollar closed sharply lower against the U.S. Dollar last week after the Reserve Bank unexpectedly committed to keep interest rates at record lows through to 2020 on disappointing economic activity. The Reserve Bank of Australia wasn’t as dovish as the RBNZ, nonetheless, the Australian Dollar weakened as the central bank showed no intention of raising rates over the near future. The Dollar/Yen was under pressure last week on trade tensions and on revelations the Bank of Japan is under pressure to move away from its accommodative policy. Geopolitical tensions in Turkey drove the Lira sharply lower, causing investors to dump higher-yielding currencies like the Euro, Australian and New Zealand Dollars. Money then flowed into the safe-haven U.S. Dollar and Japanese Yen.

    Dollar rises with focus on trade, economy; ruble, lira plunge

    The greenback has the upper hand over emerging market currencies in a trade war scenario, analysts said, and tariffs may actually narrow the U.S. trade deficit. The pound is weakening as investors ramp up bets that Britain will leave the European Union without an agreement with Brussels on their future relationship. "Higher consumer prices, which are on the cards, would be supportive of both the dollar and the Federal Reserve, raising rates further this year," said Joe Manimbo, senior market analyst at Western Union Business Solutions in Washington.

    GLOBAL MARKETS-U.S. sanctions slam Russian ruble, Turkey's lira tumbles

    New U.S. sanctions drove down Russia's ruble, while worries that Turkey was sliding into a full-blown economic crisis battered the lira on Thursday, but global equity markets largely shrugged off these events to edge higher. The Russian ruble slid 1 percent after Washington said it would impose fresh sanctions because it had determined that Moscow had used a nerve agent against a former Russian agent and his daughter in Britain, which the Kremlin denies. The ruble slid to its lowest since late 2016, hitting 66.7099 rubles to the dollar and leaving it, after a second day of declines, more than 4 percent weaker than it had been late on Tuesday.
