For example, by building a percentage chart in the NetTradeX terminal for 5 instruments which quote the price of gold in various currencies - XAUUSD, &XAUJPY, &XAUJPY, &XAUCNH and &XAURUB (Fig.1 ), it is evident that during the recent year gold advanced against ruble, rising gradually at first and then proceeding to climb sharply starting from July 2014, while at the same time retreating a little bit against other currencies.
