The weighted average dollar exchange rate hit RUR31.81 in the first half of this morning's trading session. It surged RUR0.04 against a RUR0.01 rise observed at the previous special trading session.
Experts from domestic commercial banks explained that the dollar rate was growing due to the upcoming long holidays - November 7 to 9. That is why traders are making significant dollar purchases.

As a result, the trade volume surpassed $30m ten minutes after the opening of the UTS.
