"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.

Global leaders acting like fucking children. Just because Putin won't let someone topple assad so someone else can build a pipeline through Syria we have to go through all this childish shit. Fucking embarrased to be a human alongside these cunts

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.

Discontinued? As in forever?

Never say never.

After the emergency meeting by the Russian Central Bank today it could be the Dollar that is discontinued by this afternoon.

Wouldn't want to allow "trading" in "unstable" markets!

Oh, the MF Irony is so thick!

Abssolute proof the financial system was designed as an absolute means of control and punishment. Disgusting.

When does world stop USD trading because instability?

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.

Damn... A bunch of ZHers smoking Putin's hopium here. Russia is in a world of hurt. Ain't no fucking gold standard coming. They'll bomb before then. But won't be able to sustain shit if they're broke.

The west is winning. Again.

Divided States of America's picture

Not smoking anything TM but honestly who in this world is standing up to the zionist regime except Putin....the enemy of my enemy is my friend

And what the West is doing to Russia isnt right.

If WW3 needs to happen, it was already planned from a while back. Just buckle up for a future that aint going to be smooth.

I'm with you re: Russia vs cancerous Zionist terrorists.

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'd love to see the Soros types kidnapped by Spetznaz, skinned alive, then shot out of a cannon.

centerline's picture

Interesting reading.  Thank you.  As I have said before again and again... this is a much bigger, far more complicated game.  And there is one thing that can be counted on again and again: greed. 

fleur de lis's picture

But they should first save Soro's brain--or what ever it is that fills his cranium--and see what kind of strange microsopic life forms can produce such destructive thoughts.

chunga's picture

like centerline says...greed will be the downfall of humanity.

there's something inside a handful of these organisms that is plain evil

Zoros is a fuckin parasite...its as evil and hideous as the brain bug from Starship Troopers.

I searched the the article on ROSSWIFT testing, but I can't find it. Mind sharing?

About seven years ago?

Wait, was that a trick question?

centerline's picture

Yeah, right.  Because Russia and China are just shining models of transparency and trust.

Amid allegations of internal CBR sabotage, Putin is going to nationalize the CBR very shortly cutting all ties to the Rothschilds in London.

ATTENTION TRADER: Please be aware that due to recent instability in the S&P, NYSE and NASDAQ markets, selling in these exchanges will be discontinued effective immediately. All 'buy' orders will be processed in ordinary course.

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.

TheReplacement's picture

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.

USisCorrupt's picture

Don't worry a mere 20% peg to Gold should do the trick.


Putin PLEASE feel free to FREE the Slaves of this World, if only they realized they were Slaves and we would NOT even be in this situation in the first place.

Bye bye SWIFT, hello RIFT.

Or whatever they'll call it. But this name seems very appropriate.

Or they could dump all their treasuries, all at once. Maybe China will even join in.

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

Done. One word... Kerry.

2 hrs ago:

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met again Sunday to discuss Ukraine, just days after U.S. lawmakers voted in support of providing military aid for Ukrainian forces.

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.

Humans aren't perfect, nor is the world.

Until they are, we'll take the survey sunshine between the rain. A break from Oligarchs is still a break.

implement capital controls as a pathetic last ditch effort to maintain some sense of sanity in Russia's economy? is that the checkmate you're referring to?

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.

You are seriously still going with this meme?  Putin has completely effed himself with his move into the Ukraine with the bad fortune (for his dumb ass) of collapsing oil.  

Does Russia's central bank raising overnight rates 6 1/2% in one day not tell you something?  i mean really, doesnt that tell you they're completely out of ideas?  Fucking idiots on here...

Pootstain's gonna be lucky to survive this.
