Russia’s Ruble Climbs Further as Oil Touches $75

The Russian currency benefited from another day of growing demand for the crude oil, providing support for the ruble to advance versus the euro, dollar and the pound, as the demand for energy rises in the coldest season of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
After the crude oil touched $75 a barrel in New York today, the ruble continued its previous days advances versus most of the main currencies as the economic outlook for the world’s biggest energy exporter in 2010 is very optimistic, with an annual growth up to 5 percent expected for the coming year.
USD/RUB traded at 30.19 as of 18:10 GMT from an opening rate of 30.57 today.
