Another specialist told how much the US currency can cost without support measures in Russia.
Financial expert Yan Marchinsky spoke about how the ruble exchange rate is formed and what it depends on.
According to him, there are actually “several dollar rates”.
At the same time, the exchange rate depends on the corridor set by officials from the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.
He told radio “Komsomolskaya Pravda”.
“The fact that they receive some kind of coordination is another matter. But my personal opinion is that this is a completely and completely set rate, and it still has nothing to do with the real exchange rate, which would be on the open market and in open auctions & # 8221;, & # 8211; said the expert.
He noted that if the restrictions of the Russian financial regulator are lifted, a strong drawdown will begin, and the dollar may rise above 100 rubles.
Then the analyst expects the situation to normalize, as the EU will continue to buy gas in rubles.
Thus, the expert calls the level of 90-100 rubles as the real exchange rate of the ruble at the moment.
Against this background, currency strategist Brendan McKenna said that without measures of support from the outside, the real exchange rate of the dollar is 180 rubles.
In an interview with Bloomberg journalists, he said that last April the ruble appreciated by 71% compared to March, when the dollar soared to 121 rubles.
As a result, thanks to emergency capital controls and other actions of the Russian authorities, the ruble strengthened.
At the same time, McKenna notes that the current dollar exchange rate does not show the real purchasing power of the ruble.
Earlier, TopNews wrote that the expert told how much the dollar will cost after m of the holidays.
It was also reported that exchangers were buying US dollars from Russians at a predatory rate.
