Ukrainians in anticipation of something bad began to actively buy up currency

For the first time in almost three years, the Ukrainians have bought more currencythan sold. In October the population had sold almost 710,6 million dollars, and bought 2.4 million more – 712 million dollars.

This is stated in the accounting data of the National Bank of Ukraine.

In September, the situation was radically different – then the population had sold the currency to $ 41 million more than they bought.

During January-October of 2017, the sale of cash foreign currency by the population through banks remains higher for a purchase of 2,033 billion dollars, writes UNIAN.

For the entire 2016 net sales of foreign currency by the population through banks amounted to 2.48 billion dollars, which is 1.6 times higher than in 2015.

Last time the purchase of foreign currency by the population via banks exceeded its sale in January 2015, when Ukrainians bought $ 19.4 million more than was sold.

Recall that in the budget for 2017 laid down the dollar to 27.2 UAH. In the draft budget for the 2018 laid a course to 29.3 UAH per dollar.

Ranma, the government announced such currency forecasts: the exchange rate of the hryvnia (average per year) in 2018 will amount to 29.3 UAH per dollar, in 2019 – 30.5 UAH per dollar in 2020 – 31 UAH per dollar.

Ukrainian business expects that in the next year, the exchange rate will be at 27 to 30 UAH per dollar. This is evidenced by the survey among entrepreneurs, held by the NBU.

Throughout its history, the hryvnia has established a record two-and-a-half years ago – February 26, 2015 in NBU official exchange United States dollar amounted to 30.01 UAH, and the Euro – 34,04 UAH.
