The National Bank wants to buy up dollar more actively


The head of the Council of the National Bank of Ukraine supports more active buying up of currency. The head of the Council of the National Bank of Ukraine Bogdan Danilishin considers it expedient to intensify buying up of currency by the Central Bank in the interbank currency exchange market for replenishment of the international reserves. About it on Monday, February 11, he wrote to the Facebook page. According to Danilishin, now the hryvnia becomes stronger with support of both external, and internal factors. Among external - delay of increase in discount rates by the main Central Banks of the world and rather low prices of energy carriers. Internal support to hryvnia is given a record harvest grain, promoting inflow of export revenue, increase in fiscal discipline in the end of the year and also restoration of interest of foreign investors in hryvnia state bonds - for this purpose nonresidents buy hryvnia on Mezhbank and by that increase the offer of foreign currency. At the same time the head of the Council of the NBU warned that the trend on strengthening of hryvnia by the end of June can change. According to him, export of the Ukrainian agricultural products since May will decline, and investments of nonresidents in the state bond are short-lived. Besides, the delay of growth rates of world economy expected by the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank can lead to decrease in demand for products of the Ukrainian export. At the same time, as reported in the NBU, despite currency sales renewal, the regulator for last week bought maximum in two months - since December 7, 2018 - the week volume of currency in 175 million dollars. According to the provided data, in general since the beginning of year - for the period from January 2 to February 8 - the NBU bought 382.9 million dollars on Mezhbank, sold - 57.3 million dollars. Let's remind, the National Bank in 2018 bought about 3.2 billion dollars in the interbank currency exchange market. As it was reported earlier, the official dollar exchange rate fell lower than 27 hryvnias, having overcome, thus, a psychological mark. News from the Correspondent.netv of Telegram.
