During the New Year holidays, the dollar exchange rate in Ukraine may “jump” for a short time.
The director of Cominbank’s treasury department Herman Marchenko predicts exchange rate fluctuations, noting that they will be short-lived, and the dollar will remain in the range of 40-41 UAH/dollar, reports “Reviewer“.
“In the last week of the year and at the beginning of 2023, no significant changes in the foreign exchange market are expected. The corridor of exchange rate fluctuations will remain at the level of 40-41 hryvnias/dollar… However, we assume possible several-day fluctuations of the exchange rate within 1% especially on holidays. But the dollar will quickly return to the economically motivated corridor,” the expert is confident.
In his opinion, any extreme rate jumps are not expected either before the New Year or in the first week after it.
