Since November 5, the NBU has been conducting daily currency auctions of small volumes using a Dutch auction scheme to ensure exchange rate equilibrium or stabilize the exchange rate of hryvnia at the current level.
From November 28, the NBU reduced the amount of currency it sells at auctions, from $5 million to $3 million.
