Forecasts and recommendations

In December, the Russian company has to make large payments on foreign borrowing in the currency so the demand for rubles in the near future can be diminished, and the U.S., conversely, grow up a bit, appreciated Ivan Kopeikin from “BCS Express”.

“An additional risk for the commodity currencies remains the possibility of a rate hike at the nearest meeting. Also, do not exclude a further deterioration of relations between Turkey and Russia, which in General is not a positive for the currencies of both countries. So the pair EUR/USD may resume the rise with the immediate goal in the area 67”, he concluded.

Tax period in the Russian market has entered the homestretch — the end of the month the banks will have to list the payments under the tax, said Yuri Kravchenko from IK “Veles Capital”.

However, although the factor payments already weakening, the demand for ruble liquidity may remain elevated because of the persistence of the Central Bank’s modest limits on REPO auctions, he added.
