After strengthening of the hryvnia on the interbank currency market on Wednesday and another rollback on Thursday, buyers and sellers took a wait – on the last day of the month, market participants do not hurry to enter a trade.
“The news background is relatively neutral, but the negative remains the high levels of infection Covid-19. Also yesterday it became known that a group of U.S. senators representing the Republican and Democratic party, introduced a bill which provides for an annual allocation of $ 300 million to Ukraine for military assistance. The document also demands that the US administration appointed a special envoy to Ukraine as U.S. representative at the peace talks in the Normandy format and facilitated dialogue between the black sea countries. In addition, the bill encourages the state Department to establish a working group on Ukraine with European allies,” – said in comments Delo.ua head of Department of Analytics GK Forex Club Andrey Shevchishin.

Among the factors contributing to the stabilization of the exchange rate, according to the analyst, one can distinguish marked from July 27 to sharp decline in sales of government bonds by non-residents. “However, the market continues to push the liquidity received from the repayment of hryvnia bonds, and the adherence of the currency from exporters. Next week the scheduled payments on the bonds UAH 16 billion and $ 140 million, which is also a factor of pressure on the market. Market participants are waiting for news from the NBU on personnel decisions, which also affects the mood of the market”, – said the Shevchishin.
According to analysts, probably, in the near future, the hryvnia will continue to demonstrate the vibrations and will move in the range of 27.7-27.9 hryvnia to the dollar.

Stabilization of the dollar against the hryvnia analysts attribute not only from a purely Ukrainian factors – the situation on the currency market in the world.
“The US dollar in the global currency market to date consistently weak – the July meeting of the Federal reserve gave no new guidance and does not help in the revaluation of key macroeconomic parameters. The fed will continue to support the economy, but about new steps not a word was said. No incentive, which has already managed to “dream big” on the grounds, no revision of the inflation target (and where is the targeting?), no change of rhetoric – nothing,” – said in a comment Delo.ua RoboForex analyst Andrew Golov.
