What will happen to the course in the near future:
According to economist Oleg Hetman’s forecast, the cash exchange rate of the dollar in Ukraine is unlikely to change dramatically in the near future. The value of the currency will gradually move towards the official rate. The expert believes that the dollar will be stable and does not see the prerequisites for a wild jump now – there are no factors that would provoke this yet.
Anna Zolotko, Director of the Department of Treasury Operations at Unex Bank, predicts that the dollar exchange rate in Ukraine will fluctuate between UAH 37.4-37.9 until May 21. According to her, the cash rate in the coming days will slowly move towards the official one, but the Ukrainians will not feel the changes.
“This course of events indicates a high degree of market balance. And a strong stabilizing factor in the market remains the extended limit on the sale of cash to the population, which the NBU introduced in mid-April,” the expert explained.
