The national bank of Ukraine obliged commercial banks to sell since November 8 to the population cash dollars at the rate of not higher than 1,5% of the official. As reported RBC - Ukraine in one of commercial banks, about it it is spoken in No. 356 resolution NBU of November 7.
"To establish that in the cash currency market of Ukraine authorized banks establish a selling rate of cash foreign currency which shouldn't exceed an official rate of hryvnia to foreign currencies which is established by National bank of Ukraine, more than for 1,5%", - it is noted in the resolution NBU.
On the eve of NBU obliged banks to sell currency to the population at an official rate, and to buy not cheaper than for 3% of the sale price.
We will note, on November 5 the National Bank adopted the resolution No. 353 with which toughened rules of foreign exchange operations. "To establish that in the cash currency market authorized banks establish a selling rate of cash currency not above an official rate of hryvnia to currencies which NBU is established, - was spoken in the document signed by the head of NBU by Vladimir Stelmakh. - The buying price of cash currency can be established by banks within 3% lower than a price of sale of cash currency".
According to the resolution NBU, banks have no right to change a course throughout the working day and are obliged to sell the bought currency on the same day. "In case of lack of demand for cash currency its sale has to be modified the next working day by the corresponding selling rate of currency for hryvnias towards decrease", - explain in NBU. These editings are brought in the anti-recessionary resolution No. 319 in which already there is no norm about limit distinction of courses of purchase/sale of cash currency banks in 5%.
Also the National Bank limited operations in the non-cash market. "The client - the resident is obliged to use the bought non-cash currency not later than in five working days after its transfer on its current account on the purposes specified in the demand about purchase of currency", - the regulator demands. If the client doesn't use currency during this period, he is obliged to sell it on Mezhbank.
According to National Bank resolutions, commercial banks since January 1, 2009 have to pass to trade in cash foreign currency only through own cash desks".
According to the first deputy chairman of the board of "Brokbusinessbank" Vladimir Klimenko, restriction with National bank of Ukraine on valyutno - exchange operations will leave together with decrease in an agiotage in the currency market. "Such actions are protection of the currency market. This temporary phenomenon as when the course grew is there was the agiotage caused by mass removals of deposits by the population. All this it is necessary to overcome and renew trust to banks that money again started working for economy", - V. Klimenko noted.
We will remind, before NBU promised to keep two courses: cash and official (interbank). For this purpose it raised a course of interventions together with an official rate, pulling together them with Mezhbank quotations. And since October 31 I started establishing a threshold dollar exchange rate to the population (other currencies of NBU I ignored).
