RUB: little changed on the day

Yesterday, RUB traded in a range of 34.70-34.90 against USD. In the first half of the session, RUB was appreciating and touched 34.70 about the NY opening. Later, Janet Yellen's monetary policy testimony caught investors’ attention as she reiterated that the gradual QE unwind would continue. Overall, though, there were no surprises in the testimony. Hence, her comments just spurred some volatility and USDRUB spiked to 34.90, but as the dust settled at the end of the day, RUB re-gained ground. In the end, it closed flat to USD (34.77) and just about 0.1% weaker against BASKET (40.51). At the same time, on average EM FX has firmed around 0.3%against USD, so RUB was once again among the laggards.
