Trade Desk Price Chart

The Russian Ruble Strengthens

Although the Russian Ruble has strengthened, it does not mean that Russia is experiencing economic growth, instead it may be an indication that Russia is experiencing an import crisis.

Since Russia invaded Ukraine, Russian imports have fallen drastically as many countries and companies who previously imported from Russia have cut their ties to avoid backlash from the west. However, although the sanctions on Russia have been imposed, they are still exporting to many countries. This is causing the Russian current account to be in Surplus, putting upward pressure on the Ruble.

As the Western countries impose more sanctions on Russia and possibly speed up the oil Embargo, the Rubles value will struggle.

Ford Motor Co. Share Price increased

Ford stock price increased by 1.5% during in pre-market trading day on Tuesday after United Rentals (automaker and equipment rental company) announced plans to purchase electric vehicles from Ford going forward. This will drive up the demand for Ford cars going forward.
