Hello,

USD/RUR and BTC/RUR prices in btc-e.com
are not reflect the real price for USD vs Rubel
for example in:
http://www.xe.com/currencyconverter/convert/?Amount=1&From=USD&To=RUB
1 USD is 30.6 Rubel
and  USD/RUR trade for
Ask  31.66 Bid 31.08
How can it be? No one take this arbirtage?

I believe this is because BTC-E is based in Russia, and getting USD into or out of an account there is expensive and/or difficult - hence why their USD exchange rates differ from other exchanges.

Some exchanges have a higher or lower price due to difficulty of getting your money in and out of the exchange.

Perhaps, there is also some risk that the site will close or all the coins will be stolen. Mt Gox is regarded as safe by many people...
