In total for a week gold and exchange stocks of the Central Bank have grown on 8 %


Volume of gold and exchange currency reserves of Bank of Russia for January, 28th has made 128,3 mlrd dollars About it has informed department of external public relations of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation. For January, 21st the volume of gold and exchange stocks made 118,7 mlrd dollars
Thus, it has increased for a week on 9,6 mlrd dollars, or by 8 %. So scale growth of gold and exchange stocks of the Central Bank of all for five working days it has not been noted still never.
we will remind that during the period from January, 7 till January, 21st gold and exchange currency reserves have decreased in total on 5,9 mlrd dollars During the present time gold and exchange stocks of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation more than in one and a half time have won back the given falling.
meanwhile, the reason of huge increase of reserves from 21 on January, 28th remains a riddle. Even if to assume exclusively active purchase of the American currency by Bank of Russia on the Moscow Interbank Stock Exchange this purely hypothetical acquisition obviously does not hold out almost to 10 mlrd dollars for a week.
anyway, so enormous demand for currency of the USA would lead to so considerable jump of a dollar exchange rate to rouble that, as it is known, does not happen.
it is necessary to consider only what exactly from January, 21 till January, 28th the Central Bank has bought directly from the largest commercial banks, passing a stock exchange, a large quantity of the American currency. Indirect acknowledgement of such opinion is sharp reduction of the offer of dollars from participants of special sessions of the Moscow Interbank Stock Exchange just from the twentieth of January of current year.
gold and exchange currency reserves represent vysokolikvidnye the financial actives, at the disposal of Bank of Russia and the Ministry of Finance of Russia as of accounting date. They develop of the monetary gold, the special rights of loan, a reserve position in IMF and foreign currency. The foreign currency covers currency actives of Bank of Russia and the Ministry of Finance of Russia in the form of cash, the return REPO with non-residents, bank deposits in banks - non-residents, and also the state and other securities which have been let out by non-residents, having a similar rating. The sum equivalent to the rests in foreign currency on corresponding accounts of banks is subtracted from the listed actives - residents in the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, except the means intended for service of the state external debt, given out to Foreign trade and investment bank Bank of Russia.
