|Total amount of banking sector liquidity slightly declined to UAH98.5bn, as the result of NBU and Treasury operations. This week liquidity will depend on FX market situation.|
Despite VAT refund, Treasury operations had mostly negative impact on liquidity, absorbing UAH5.6bn. Additionally, the NBU had to sell FX and therefore increased negative impact on liquidity. During last week NBU absorbed UAH3.9bn, including UAH0.9bn via FX market and UAH3bn via loan redemptions from banks.
As the result, liquidity was supported only by banks via cash exchange in reserves, which is usual for the end of month, and therefore compensated UAH5bn of outflows.
ICU view: With more foreign investments coming to bills and more FX purchases by the NBU, liquidity may rise this week. Nevertheless, we expect that liquidity will continue to be slightly volatile at around UAH100bn this week.
