Rouble under pressure

By Smart Currency August 29th, 2014

  • Following a week of growing threats on tougher sanctions on Russia, the rouble fell to its lowest level in six months. The tension grew further as Ukraine said intensified separatist fighting was a ‘de facto’ incursion.
  • Thursday saw the Australian dollar jump more than expected after a fairly quiet week as capital spending by private companies grew by 1.1%, faster than the anticipated 0.3%.
