Data Visuals

dc.js - Oil and Ruble dashboard

This is a simple dashboard that shows the futures price of oil as well as the price of a dollar in rubles. The reason I included the ruble is to show visually how it is dependent on the price of oil. There are other factors that affect the USD/RUB exchange rate like economic sanctions, political circumstaces, supply and demand, etc. However, by far the oil and gas industry has nearly direct influence on the ruble economy.

I used the javascript charting library dc.js for data visualization, crossfilter for data manipulation, and for collecting data. Following resources were helpful for this exercise:

The data is updated as soon as the Quandl database is updated, usually on a daily basis.
