AMD continues to slowly weaken versus the dollar while further strengthening to the euro

ArmInfo. The currency interbank of Armenia sharply reduced the volume by 1.7 times from October 2 to 6, after a sharp increase of 3.3 times a week earlier. In parallel, the in-house foreign exchange market was marked by the inactivity of dollar transactions with the active buying and selling of the euro, accompanied by a decline in interest in ruble transactions. The exchange currency market continues to be empty.

As a result, the dram against the dollar continued to slowly weaken from 478.3 to 478.5 AMD / $ 1, while further strengthening to the euro - from 563 to 561 AMD / 1evro and holding the position to the ruble at 8.3 AMD / ruble .

At the same time, transactions in the amount of $ 14.9 million at the average weighted rate of 478.86 AMD / $ 1 (against the previous 478.58) were carried out on the interbank currency market from 2 to 6 October, with the week started actively - $ 3.4 million, significantly slowing down the turnover on Tuesday - to $ 1.4 million, with a jump on Wednesday to $ 4.4 million, after which Thursday was as passive as Tuesday, and Friday repeated Wednesday. In parallel, the trend of buying / selling the dollar in the domestic forex market dropped from 48.7-39.3% to a 7-4% decline, buying the euro has changed dynamics from a 21.8% decline to 44.3% % growth with a slowdown in sales growth from 36.2% to 21.4%, and buying-selling of the ruble changed the trend from 4.8-47% growth to 11.9-3.8% decline. As a result, $ 101.4 million was purchased at the average exchange rate of 477.63 AMD / $ 1, 11.4 million euro at the average rate of 560.24 AMD / 1EUR, and 1.4 billion rubles. at the average rate of 8.23 dr / 1RUR, and sold $ 107.2 million at an average rate of 478.81 AMD / $ 1, 21.03 million euro at an average rate of 564.35 AMD / 1EUR, and 598.8 million rubles at the average rate of 8.32 AMD / 1RUR.

According to the source, over the previous week (from September 25 to 30), Armenian banks issued AMD 49.7 billion AMD and dollar loans for $ 70.8 million. Compared to the previous period (from September 18 to September 23), the dynamics of loans issued is as follows: drams out of 12.8 % decline on 26% growth, and the same trend change, but with a more significant gap, was observed in dollar terms - a way out of the 18% decline in the $ 52% growth.
