On the Ukrainian interbank foreign exchange market, quotes in the main pair are approaching the level of 27 hryvnia per dollar. According to Finance.ua, trading on May 26 began at 26 hryvnia 86.5–88.5 kopecks per dollar, and ended at 26 hryvnia 92–94.5 kopecks per unit of American currency. According to the experts of the website “Ministry of Finance”, during almost the whole day the demand for the dollar prevailed over supply.
Experts pointed out the existence of several factors influencing the course of trading. For the benefit of the hryvnia, the Ministry of Finance held an auction for the placement of government bonds and credited foreign exchange earnings to exporting companies in two days (Monday was a day off in the USA, the Americans celebrated Memorial Day). The main VAT refunds to exporters worked against the hryvnia, which reduces the need for them to sell foreign currency.
The National Bank of Ukraine has set the rate of 26 hryvnia 90 kopecks per dollar on May 27, which is three kopecks more than the official rate on May 26.
