Russian Update: Ruble, Neon Gas and more

Russia Update on Ruble Neon Gas and more

Russian Update 1: World’s Top Performing Currency?

The Russian Ruble, now the strongest currency in the World, has been trading below 60 for some time. If it cracks 50 this year, it should be viewed as a long-term buy signal on Russia that will probably last even longer than the buy signal triggered on China in the middle of the 90s.

Russian update 2: Neon Gas

Russia now controls the Neon Gas market as Ukraine (formerly the World’s largest producer) has been knocked out of the game. Neon is essential for semiconductor manufacturing. So Russia can now use this as a bargaining chip.

Russian Update 3: Uranium Market

They supply a huge amount of Uranium to the U.S, and they could cut the supply of this and sell it to other countries.
The United States relies on Russia and its allies Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan for roughly half of the Uranium powering its nuclear plants – about 22.8 million pounds (10.3 million kg) in 2020 – which in turn produce about 20% of U.S. electricity, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration and the World Nuclear Association. https://cutt.ly/mKw4Nxk
Russia’s allies will not challenge it, especially the above two countries. If they temporarily stop selling to the U.S., prices would spike, and in doing so, they could probably sell half and still make the same money

 

Update: 4 World class producer of Titanium

Russia is the World’s third-largest producer of Titanium; this metal is used extensively in the aerospace industry and defence industry. For now, Ukraine, which is in the 5th position, is out of the game due to the war. Russia could also wreak havoc if it wanted to by interrupting supplies, making it harder for the U.S. to secure all the supplies it needs.
Russia also leads in natural gas, oil, fertilizer, wheat, Palladium, and other essential products. Russia’s bargaining power increases with the passage of each day and will become enormous once winter hits Europe.
