Interbank and Street Rates will be updated as the day goes. The rates seem to have taken a dip on the black market as a result of the recent closure of all Ecocash agent lines. A few traders seem to be using the Agent to Agent and Merchant to Merchant method to transact.
RBZ was taken to court yesterday by Ecocash we wait to see the outcomes. As always Zim trending will keep you updated on the matter. Just stay tuned. There is a wider discrepancy in the rates being paid for RTGS transfers as agents are trying to come to terms with the closure of the Ecocash agent lines.

*OMIR refers to Old Mutual Implied Rate. This is a comparison of Share prices for Old Mutual in Zimbabwe, South Africa and UK where the share is simultaneously listed. The OMIR is used as a way to calculate the implied exchange rates for the 3 countries. The reasoning is that the share price should be uniform across the three since the shares lay claim on the same cash flows, assets and liabilities.
