The National Bank of Ukraine has set the rate of 27 hryvnia 69 kopecks per dollar on July 30, this does not differ from the official rate for today. In the Ukrainian interbank foreign exchange market, the hryvnia has strengthened against the dollar – from the morning level of UAH 27 71-73 kopecks to the level of UAH 27 63-65 kopecks as of 16:00, according to Finance.ua data. “Trading in the dollar is already at its minimum activity.
Transactions in lots of up to 200 thousand dollars are in progress. Supply exceeds demand. The National Bank bought out the dollar at 27.63 hryvnia. It acquired about 20 million, ”the experts of the website“ Ministry of Finance ”said as of 16:00.
The national currency was in a wide corridor of 26.5-27 hryvnia per dollar for more than two months – from late April to early July. On July 1, the announcement of ex-NBU head Yakov Smoliy about his resignation through political pressure on him caused an increase in quotations to 27 hryvnia 20 kopecks per dollar and even higher. After Kirill Shevchenko was appointed chairman of the NBU, the devaluation of the national currency accelerated.
Over the past several sessions, the regulator has shown new benchmarks to market participants – the NBU sold more than $ 300 million last week at a rate slightly lower than UAH 28 per dollar. The interbank market finds the lower parameter of the new corridor mainly without the active participation of the National Bank.
