  • $A heading to 70 US cent, perhaps lower AAP - 9 hours ago

While most analysts say the Aussie dollar won't fall much further, LTG GoldRock director Andrew Barnett is more pessimistic, and predicts it to be 63 US cents by the middle of next year.

    Russian ruble drops to past 60 per dollar

    The Russian ruble on Tuesday plummeted past 60 against the dollar for the first time since March on falling oil prices, complicating the central bank's efforts to jump-start the battered economy. Low energy prices, brought on by the global oversupply of crude oil, have sent the Russian currency into its most recent decline, causing it to lose more than 15 percent of its value against the dollar in just over two months. The Ukrainian crisis has led to unprecedented Western sanctions on the Russian economy, and last year's collapse of oil prices plunged Russia into a monetary crisis at the end of 2014 that has led to a deep recession.
