Currency Market
Belarusian Currency and Stock Exchange is the only specialized organization in the Republic of Belarus empowered to run trades in foreign currencies.

The currency market performs a number of important economic functions:

  • formation of the current market rate of Belarusian ruble to foreign currencies;
  • setting the official rate of Belarusian ruble upon the exchange trading results;
  • providing for mandatory sale of foreign currency;
  • maintaining liquidity of the currency market.
BCSE`s electronic trading system supports transactions in "continuous double auction" and "negotiated trades" modes.

The official exchange rates of Belarusian ruble to U.S. dollar and Russian ruble are fixed upon trading results.

The currency market instruments are currency pair consisting of traded currency (lot currency), and conjugate currency (payment currency) in which the transactions will be settled.
