The Central Bank took a passive part in today's UTS, specialists of commercial banks told RosBusinessConsulting. They said the Central Bank had only submitted applications for purchasing dollars at 31.8210 RUR/USD and for selling at 31.8230 RUR/USD, however, it seemed not to have made operations.
Nevertheless, even those actions were enough to restrain the average-weighted exchange rate at the level of 31.82 RUR/USD. Indirect evidence of the Central Bank's passive interference was the amount of trade at the UTS, which was almost by one-third, $32m, lower than yesterday.
