USA concerned about ruble-yuan currency pair trade at Moscow Stock Exchange

The Moscow Stock Exchange started futures trading on the yuan-ruble currency pair, the press service of the exchange said. 

"The beginning of the new futures trading is based on the significant growth in yuan trading volume on the Moscow Stock Exchange, increase in the share of yuan-ruble foreign exchange operations on the Russian foreign exchange market and the formation of basic demand for hedging operations of foreign trade contracts between Russia and China," a message from the stock exchange said. 

In May last year, the heads of Russia and China agreed to develop settlements in national currencies. Experts had pointed out that the mutual course would be formed on the dollar-euro pair until the development of the ruble-yuan currency market, Pravda.Ru reports. 

In October, the heads of the central banks of Russia and China signed a currency swap agreement with a limit of swap lines worth 150 billion yuan. Late last year, China launched a swap and forward contracts trade in Russian rubles. 

In 2014, the total trade in yuan on the Moscow Stock Exchange increased eight times and reached 395 billion rubles (48 billion yuan). A record daily trading volume was recorded in October 2014 - 541 million yuan.

US Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew stated in this connection that the new players challenged the US leadership in the international financial system.

Jack Lew urged lawmakers to adopt a package of reforms for the International Monetary Fund that would retrieve the effectiveness of the organization for work in emerging markets. According to Lew, even US allies question the effectiveness of the IMF in the form it exists today. "Our international influence is under threat," he said, according to Pravda.Ru.
