"The Russian ruble acted completely independently in terms of correlation with oil today." By ignoring the steady rise in energy prices, the dollar was around the dollar around zero, with insufficient volatility, weakening slightly toward the euro, "comments Alexey Korene of Finam.

Anastasia Sosn from Freedom Finance notes that Brent crude oil was $ 68 a barrel and contributed to the return of the ruble to 65-66 per dollar. The risk that the ruble will emerge from the 65-68 per-dollar medium-term fell again, but a new wave of declining oil prices could trigger another round of weakening of the Russian currency, the analyst said. "However, on the eve of the OPEC + sessions in December, oil will be volatile in the range of $ 65-70 a barrel than to continue descent," she added.


Rublab looks calm and stable by the end of the week, says Anna Bodrová of Alpari. The new week for the dollar / ruble couple can begin in the corridor of 65.6-66.15 rubles, he predicts.

"As a general rule, once the market reminds us that the sanctions have not disappeared, but they were imposed only on time, everything falls into place. The euro / ruble will stabilize around 75-75.55 rubles, but if the euro continues to recover the world market , will have a chance to return to 76 rubles, "- said the analyst.

A few dollars / rubles, before being set at 66.22 rubles, can be prone to moving around 65 rubles, says Elena Kozhukhova of Veles Capital. The euro, which fails to overcome the resistance of 75.35 rubles, may be inclined to move to the area of ​​74 rubles, she believes.

"At the end of the week, the growth of Russian equity and foreign exchange markets has weakened, but the short-term prospects remain slightly positive both from a basic and a technical point of view, favorable to the Russian market is the growth potential of oil prices and delays in introducing a sanction," – said the expert.
