For a week, the U.S dollar fell in price by 30 tyiyn in Kyrgyzstan and returned to its August positions.
Today, the capital’s exchange offices and commercial banks buy the dollar for 68.5-68.7 soms, and sell — for 69-69.15 soms. Thus, over the past two weeks, the American currency has fallen in price by 60 tyiyns.
Nominal rate of the National Bank turned out to be higher than the real one — 68,8111 soms (0.63 percent drop for a day).
The dollar has been fluctuating since mid-August in Kyrgyzstan. Then it began to rise in price sharply against the background of reports about devaluation of the Russian ruble and tenge. After an intervention of the National Bank, the situation stabilized, but the U.S. currency began to appreciate again in early September and almost reached the level of 70 soms. The National Bank of Kyrgyzstan again intervened thaving sold dollars.
