ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the market performance of Russian ruble and Swiss franc currencies. The ruble can now be freely traded on international exchanges, and foreigners can hold ruble deposits in Russia and abroad. Investors are no longer required to keep interest-free deposits at the central bank when they invest in Russian fixed-income markets. Meanwhile, the economy of Switzerland is generating strong growth, low unemployment, low inflation and a huge current account surplus.
