RUB: down like the rest


On Friday, RUB continued weakening in line with the general EM FX trend. Hence, it lost 0.6% against USD (40.37), while EM FX index slipped 0.7% vs. USD. Specifically, we highlight that TRY was down 0.8%, BRL slipped 1.3% and ZAR with MXN declined 0.4–0.5%. In addiion, NOK surrendered 0.6% against USD, while NZD and AUD gave up 0.7% and 1.1%, respectively. Meanwhile, BASKET traded as high as 45.26 on Friday, though it closed at 45.17 (+20 kopeks). Therefore, the CBR has shifted up the BASKET’s range five times from 45.00 to 45.25. This suggests that the amount of FX in interventions on Friday was near USD 1.75bn.
