"The USDRUB Pair Will Be Discontinued Due To Recent Instability Of The Russian Ruble"

Tyler Durden's picture


Dear Russian Ruble traders, please find a different sandbox, because "evil speculators" will no longer be tolerated, first at Forex Capital Markets and soon, everywhere else.

And now, unless the selloff in US equity futures is immediately halted, expect the first self-help headline in US markets to strike - as usual - within hours.

Looks like a VERY GOOD TIME for Russia to announce a Gold Standard.




But then they would need to halt trading in the US Dollar. hehe


China please feel free to join us. We will even do REAL Audits of our Gold & Silver.

The Truth:

doesn't matter much what they claim for the ruble here...since as of yesterday:   Early in the week, Russia announced they are moving up the testing for their newly proposed currency clearing systemIt had been planned for a May, 2015 testing phase followed by going live, this is now moved up to Dec. 15th, yes, this MondayWhyWhy are they moving up the start datePresumably they also know something or see the immediate need to be able to clear funds for trade outside of SWIFT

If you think this one through, Russia will have the ability to facilitate ANY trade between ANY two or more parties while excluding the use of dollarsand the prying eyes of AmericaThis will mean whatever sanctions on Russia will be lessened, it also means SWIFT is no longer the only game in townMaybe the BRICS et al will no longer care, or need to use SWIFTNo, not “maybe”, definitely.

Maybe this is a what Putin ultimately wants because they can get off this USD fiat currency system in a jiffy WHEN everybody decides to stop trading the Ruble against the USD, hence putting this FX manipulation to an end once and for all.

Russia has been in the crosshairs of the money scammers since the mid-19th century when they refused the central bank system access to Russia. Then the Czar sent his navy to guard our Atlantic and Pacific coastlines from intruders during the Civil War. When his oil fields of Baku produced more oil in one day than all of JRockefeller's fields on the same day, he refused to let outsiders control them. It was at that point that a firebug and known criminal named Stalin earned his stripes as a trusted lieutenant with the money scammers. It went on and on until the NWO finally dragged Russia down and tormented the populace for decades intending that it would never arise again and obstruct their plans. 

The Russians remember this. The dummies in DC do not. They will put up a fight because they are in it as a nation. We are not in it as a nation, we are being dragged down by the same control freaks who are capable of triggering wars to get what they want.

Orlov weighs in on this and I bet Tyler puts this up today.


Russia's central bankers, along with their friends and colleagues in the financial industry, are poised to experience an extreme lack of love from their own people.

I wonder if Vlad has any secret accounts to attack the US markets wirh. What would a few Waddell and Reed plays on a day like this do. Or possibly an localized EMP at the ninth floor of 33 Liberty. I saw the reports of what they did to the Aegis cruiser that headed toward the Crimea last year, knocked out their the electronics and made them turn tail and leave.

Could just peg the ruble to gold (not on dollar value) and require rubles, yuan, or gold for trading oil...  that should about solve the problem.

Truther    Putin will check mate Obama soon enough.... Watch what he does... And what he says.


And where is the view that Obama doesn't care and maybe he is helping Putin? After all, he (Obama) would be more flexible after Obama was elected a second term.

As far I am concerned Obama is saying and doing most things to put America in decline in the spirit of progressive fairness to the world. And I think Putin is happy enough for that present and is quite willing to take advantage of it.

The sad part is that 99% of all politicians of both major parties in the USA are part of the problem, thus no solution will be found. And a reset only temperarily removes the current politicians and oligarchs before a new group takes over.

I agree with you to some extent. However, raising interest rates is not capital controls. It is recognizing the market. If the market dictates it, then rates will rise even higher. Compared to the US, that is capital control where interest rates are kept at artificially low rates by the FRB.

And of course someone that can't comprehend my previous post and/or doesn't understand markets downvoted me simply because I posted an anti-Obama post. You'd think after all the crap Obama has pulled, we'd have gotten rid of the progressives, but they will continue on until their own death by their own hands. And I say to them, march on.
