Increased volatility in the Russian currency market may persist this week, given the large number of important events: in the U.S. on Wednesday, the meeting will be held by the fed, and in the Russian Federation meeting on the Central Bank rate will be held on Friday, the chief economist for Russia and CIS ING Bank Dmitry Polevoy.
“Given that expectations for rates by the fed since the beginning of the year calmed down considerably (the market does not expect them to change before September), and the Central Bank will probably leave the rate unchanged, in the presence of support from oil prices, the ruble may feel confident, but the high volatility will continue,” – said the economist.
