Ukrainian hryvnia influenced by seasonality. This is evidenced by the experience of the last four years. This is what affects its rate in the foreign exchange market.

The first place we occupy in the export of sun oil. When it exports, it is revenue. On the other hand, you need to understand that Ukraine has an economy that is not fully on the light side. In particular, a large part of the agricultural sector is in the shade,” explained Cury.

He recalled that in 2016 the fluctuations of the hryvnia began in September, last year – in August, this year in July.

“The reason is simple. Course important to business and the public. They (the business) looked at this and realized that reason to wait Sep no, so I bought the currency in August. I think that this year happened the same situation. Here we see the psychological impact. I wouldn’t call what is happening today, panic, but there is a certain nervousness. Fluctuations are not a sign of crisis,” – said the Deputy head of the NBU.

The growth rate of the Euro is influenced by quite different factors.

“All the other courses are derived from the dollar. In recent years, the emerging markets, the situation is quite unstable. For the month, the hryvnia depreciated by somewhere in the 4%, but the South African currency devalued by 10%,” added CORI.
