Earlier chernayakobra.ru wrote that Artyom Tuzov, executive director of the capital market department of the investment company Univer Capital, advised Russians not to sell currency while it is growing in price. He explained that in the current situation one should focus on buying the dollar at its rate below 80 rubles, and the euro below 90 rubles. The moment when the rates of these currencies exceed the indicated levels can be regarded as a signal to sell them.
The expert also noted that the ruble is falling and growing cyclically, but in its dynamics it is not able to show its previous values again. That is, it is unlikely to return to 65 or 68 per dollar.
