Совет директоров Банка России 10 сентября 2021 года принял решение повысить ключевую ставку на 25 б.п., до 6,75% годовых. В II квартале 2021 года российская экономика достигла допандемического уровня и, по оценкам Банка России, возвращается на траекторию сбалансированного роста. Вклад в инфляцию со стороны устойчивых факторов остается существенным в связи с более быстрым расширением спроса по сравнению с возможностями наращивания выпуска. В этих условиях и с учетом высоких инфляционных ожиданий баланс рисков для инфляции смещен в сторону проинфляционных. Это может привести к более продолжительному отклонению инфляции вверх от цели. Проводимая Банком России денежно-кредитная политика направлена на ограничение этого риска и возвращение инфляции к 4%.

ACI Russia провела опрос по ключевой ставке ЦБ РФ
сентябрь10, 2021
На этот раз опрос в группе ACI Russia показал кластеризацию вокруг двух принципиально разных подходов: поднимать ставку (и тогда сразу на 0.5%) либо же держать. При этом участники голосования не делали особых различий между прогнозированием и пожеланием. Впрочем, повышение ставки до 7.00%, так или иначе, выглядит неминуемым

Дорогие коллеги!

Сегодня, 17 августа, в очередную годовщину Великого Дефолта 1998 года, станового испытания для российского дилерского сообщества, мы по-прежнему отмечаем День дилера, каждый на свой лад. Пандемия, с рекордными цифрами смертности в России, не позволяет нам отмечать его так, как мы привыкли - всем сообществом, с возлияниями и поглощениями! 30 июня Совет ACI Russia, осознавая свою социальную ответственность, принял решение не проводить в этом году традиционную вечеринку в честь Дня дилера, с целью обеспечения безопасности наших членов, участников мероприятий, спикеров, гостей.

Но сегодня у нас есть способ "вспомнить все". Мы приглашаем вас пересмотреть воспоминания участников событий 1998 года, подготовленные нами к 20-летию Дефолта, а также поделиться своими (присылайте видео через любимый файлообменник на адрес acirussia@gmail.com) и мы разместим его на сайте www.aciproject1998.org, посвященном этому событию.

Плейлист с воспоминаниями участников доступен на YouTube-канале ACI Russia.
Смотрите и подписывайтесь!

С искренними поздравлениями,
Совет ACI Russia

Банк России принял решение повысить ключевую ставку на 100 б.п., до 6,50% годовых
июль 23, 2021
Совет директоров Банка России 23 июля 2021 года принял решение повысить ключевую ставку на 100 б.п., до 6,50% годовых. По оценкам Банка России, в II квартале 2021 года российская экономика достигла допандемического уровня. Вклад в инфляцию со стороны устойчивых факторов возрос в связи с более быстрым расширением спроса по сравнению с возможностями наращивания выпуска. C учетом высоких инфляционных ожиданий это значимо сместило баланс рисков для инфляции в сторону проинфляционных и может привести к более продолжительному отклонению инфляции вверх от цели. Принятое решение по ключевой ставке направлено на ограничение этого риска и возвращение инфляции к 4%.
ACI Russia провела опрос по ключевой ставке ЦБ РФ
июль 22, 2021
Завтра нас ожидает разрешение интриги: какое решение примет Банк России? Мнения разделились в небывало широком диапазоне. Участники рынка (опрос ACI) настроены несколько более агрессивно на повышение, чем экономисты (аналитики, опрос Bloomberg). При этом сами они не так сильно уверены необходимости повышения ставки в данный момент.

июнь 30, 2021
В связи с мерами по противодействию распространения коронавирусной инфекции COVID-19, принимаемыми Правительством Российской Федерации, Министерством Здравоохранения РФ, Роспотребнадзором РФ и Правительством Москвы, Совет ACI Russia – The Financial Markets Association также осознает свою социальную ответственность и с целью обеспечения санитарной безопасности наших членов, участников мероприятий, спикеров, гостей принял решение об отмене проведения вечеринки по случаю Дня Дилера 17 августа 2021 года.
Мы также призываем всех членов ACI Russia, не имеющих медицинских противопоказаний, пройти вакцинацию от COVID-19, соблюдать меры безопасности и беречь здоровье и жизни свои и окружающих вас людей.
В данный момент ACI Russia начинает активную подготовку к международному eFX Summit 2021, который запланирован на 21 октября 2021 года в отеле Лотте в гибридном формате.

30 апреля 2021 года Совет директоров Национальной финансовой ассоциации утвердил Кодекс этики финансового аналитика, разработанный СРО НФА. Документ подготовлен на основе принципов и положений Кодекса деловой этики и стандартов профессионального поведения CFA Institute, рекомендованного Банком России для финансовых аналитиков. Кодекс разрабатывался СРО НФА во взаимодействии с представителями профессионального сообщества аналитиков и Банка России. Он предназначен для использования в качестве дополнения к законам, правилам и нормам регулирования, и определяет этические принципы, обязанности и стандарты профессионального поведения финансового аналитика.

Начиная с июня 2021 года приглашаем аналитиков, которые работают в составе команд профессиональных участников или самостоятельно, присоединиться к реестру и подтвердить свою приверженность Кодексу этики финансового аналитика. Это относится ко всем, кто занимается анализом финансовых рынков, отдельных инструментов и экономики в целом.
Мы также призываем компании – профессиональных участников финансового рынка рекомендовать присоединяться к Кодексу сотрудникам своих аналитических подразделений, которые делают аналитику для клиентов или широкой аудитории.

Кодекс – это инструмент для продвижения на российском финансовом рынке ценностей этики, профессионализма и прозрачности, в том числе, среди тех, кто работает с розничными инвесторами, как от лица своих работодателей, так и самостоятельно на всех возможных медиа-платформах и в социальных сетях. Мы надеемся, что принятие Кодекса станет шагом на пути к построению прозрачной и честной модели взаимодействия между профессиональным сообществом аналитиков и миллионами людей, приходящих на финансовый рынок, и будет способствовать формированию культуры добросовестного поведения в отрасли.

Банк России принял решение повысить ключевую ставку на 50 б.п., до 5,50% годовых

июнь11, 2021
Российская и мировая экономика восстанавливаются быстрее, чем ожидалось ранее. Инфляция складывается выше прогноза Банка России. Вклад в инфляцию со стороны устойчивых факторов возрастает в связи с более быстрым расширением спроса по сравнению с возможностями наращивания выпуска. На краткосрочном горизонте это влияние усиливается ростом цен на мировых товарных рынках. C учетом высоких инфляционных ожиданий баланс рисков значимо сместился в сторону проинфляционных.
Заседание Совета ACI Russia прошло в очно-заочном формате (лично и по Zoom)
июнь10, 2021
На Совете были подняты вопросы вступления в Ассоциацию, проведения мероприятия по случаю Дня Дилера, инициатива EMCR, НФА и CFA – «Кодекс этики финансового аналитика», проведение обучающих вебинаров по FX Global Code на русском и английском языках, а также "черный список ЦБ РФ".

ACI FMA's response to ESMA's Consultation Paper on the Algorithm Trading

The Bank of Russia decided to raise the key rate to 4.50%
March 19, 2021
The Board of the Bank of Russia decided to raise the key rate by 25 bps, to 4.50% per annum. The growth rate of consumer prices in the first quarter is higher than the forecast of the Bank of Russia. The recovery in domestic demand is gaining strength and is moving faster than previously expected, outpacing output growth in a number of sectors. Expectations for external demand are also improving on the back of additional budget support measures in a number of countries and an increase in the rate of vaccination of the population. Inflation expectations of the population and business remain at an elevated level. The balance of risks has shifted towards pro-inflationary ones.

Analysts and market participants surveyed overwhelmingly do not expect a change in the key rate at the next meeting on Friday, but there is a small probability that the Central Bank will raise the rate this week. At the same time, market participants themselves are a little more hawkish than they think about the intentions of the Central Bank

ACI FMA’s response to ESMA’s Consultation on the use of OTFs
November 27, 2020
On 25 September 2020, the European Securities and Markets Authority (“ESMA") launched a public consultation from the MiFID II / MiFIR review series, the regulatory package introduced in the European Union (“EU") on 3 January 2018. The consultation paper sets out proposals to clarify the MiFID II provisions relating to Organised Trading Facilities (“OTF") and to multilateral systems more broadly, in order to “ensure efficient EU market structures and a more level playing field between all firms operating in the EU while reducing the level of complexity for market participants."
Based on the feedback received, ESMA will now develop reports for the EU Commission, which it intends to submit in Q1 2021.
