Usually, the New Year holiday brings not only Olivier, jelly and drunken faces in our cozy world. He is still able to influence the exchange rate, helping to earn or lose money. At least a little, but the dollar is getting more expensive before the holiday. Moreover, there is no particular reason, there is simply an uncontrolled desire for profit in a short time.
By the way, Korea really want to fight, and the USA really wants to help fight. During the fall of the dollar, such logical chains could ruin the currency for several figures in a week. From scratch, for joy and personal pleasure. There are no particular reasons to think about the negative on the dollar. It is more worth being afraid of the fall of the Ukrainian hryvnia.
Bent from the empty place of the riots of entrepreneurs in Ukraine, approaching the New Year. All this will affect the hryvnia course. Of course, maybe we will not see the fall more than 10-20 kopecks, but more powerful jumps under 9 hryvnia mark are not excluded. If the profit is in dollars, then such a drop in the hryvnia affects the personal budget very positively. I would be glad to see the national currency at least 8.3-8.5 before the New Year. Although, it is not particularly important, only a pleasant trifle =) but for the people it is not very joyful, because speculi will increase again prices. Nobody needs the regulation of these figures, so unpunished manipulation before the holidays will be guaranteed. And everyone will say that, they say, the meat has become 1.5 times more expensive due to the growth of the dollar by 10 kopecks. The crowd will breathe and buy meat at a price of gold.
