|The high level of banking-sector liquidity, which exceeded UAH113bn last week, allowed banks to repay loans to the NBU. This week, total banking-sector liquidity will be volatile at around UAH100bn.|
Last Monday, liquidity rose to UAH113.1bn, which, by Friday, allowed banks to repay UAH7.6bn of loans that had been received from the NBU two weeks before. With the negative impact of non-monetary operations, which amounted to UAH2.1bn, liquidity fell to UAH104bn by the end of last week. Outflows to Treasury accounts occurred last Wednesday, which was settlement day after Tuesday's auction (see our special comment).
ICU view: As month-end tax payments and VAT refunds most likely will take place next week, the last three days of the month, we do not expect significant liquidity movements this week. So, volatility will stay around UAH100bn.
