MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. The euro rose by 0.6% against the Russian ruble in early trading on the Moscow Exchange on Tuesday to a record high of 54.
The US dollar rose by 0.5% against the ruble to 42.25.
The value of the bi-currency basket comprising €0.45 and $0.55 grew by 25 kopecks against the ruble to 47.65.
The Russian Central Bank’s ruble trading band currently stands at 38.4-47.4.
The Russian regulator uses the ruble value of the bi-currency basket as an operational benchmark to mitigate the ruble’s excessive volatility. Once the regulator’s interventions at a trading band boundary reach $350 million, the trading band limits are automatically shifted by 5 kopecks.
