MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Russian rouble jumped to a seven-year high against the dollar and euro on Moscow Exchange on Tuesday, supported by capital controls and the prospect of favourable month-end tax payments.
By 1423 GMT, the rouble was 2.1% stronger against the dollar at 54.44. It earlier touched 54.20 per dollar, its strongest mark since June 2015.
Against the euro, the currency gained 1.8% to trade at 57.80, earlier touching 57.0250, its strongest point since May 2015.
