The American dollar continued its growth against the ruble. By 18:00 at the auctions of the Moscow stock exchange the American currency has risen in price to 40 rubles and 11 kopecks.
On October 6, the US currency set a historical record, exceeding 40 rubles per dollar, while the euro has not yet reached its historical maximum, which is 51 rubles, but has already come close to it.
Then, on Monday, taking a psychological mark, the dollar slightly rolled back in price. Analysts say that this was due to the fact that the Central Bank of Russia began to massively sell dollars, wishing to halt the decline in the exchange rate of the national currency.
