Foreign exchange market in August, 2017



The non-cash foreign exchange market of the Republic of Moldova is determined by the turnover of purchase/sale transactions of the foreign currency that have taken place on different segments of the market, except those performed by the National Bank of Moldova. Particularly monitored market segments are the interbank market (purchase/sale transactions of foreign currency performed by the commercial banks between themselves) and the intrabank market (purchase/sale transactions of foreign currency performed between the banks and their clients).

The information related to the non-cash foreign exchange market is computed based on the Reports on the Amounts of Foreign Currency Purchased and Sold by the Bank against Moldovan Lei, which are submitted to the National Bank of Moldova according to the Regulation on setting up the official exchange rate of the Moldovan Leu against foreign currencies  (approved by the decision of the Council of Administration of the National Bank of Moldova nr. 3 as of January 15, 2009).
Operations are reflected at the transaction date.
The US dollars equivalent is calculated using the average monthly exchange rates of Moldovan Leu against the US dollar and the other foreign currency, accordingly. The information regarding the non-cash foreign exchange market is published on a monthly basis until the last day of the next reporting month.

The methodology of calculating the amount of SWAP operations – daily weighted average, based on the maturity of the SWAP operation (number of days). Example: A SWAP transaction of 10 mil. USD with a term of 15 days in a 30 calendar days’ month is reflected as an amount of 5 mil. USD. The currencies are recalculated using average monthly exchange rates.
