The Central Bank of Russia might have been purchasing dollars this morning. Banking experts drew attention to the fact that the final volume of trading reached $94m on the unified trading system. This level is rather high, as yesterday's volume of trading barely exceeded $70m. Thus, experts, accept the possibility that the Central Bank bought around $20m on the unified trading system today. The dollars might have been purchased at the 29,90 USD/RUR exchange rate. In addition, specialists think that the Bank is not interested in decreasing the dollar rate. For this reason, the average-weighted dollar exchange rate won't drop and may even surge 3 kopecks tomorrow.
