Interbank and Street Rates will be updated as the day goes. The MDC has castigated the decision by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe to cap cashing and cashout mobile money transactions at ZWL $100.
MDC Secretary for Elections said the limit is not enough to buy something, hence the limit should be reviewed.
About the $100rtgs limit
There has been some confusion on what the $100rtgs limit is really about for cashout facilities. This limit is per transaction not per day. So this means you can cash out a maximum of 100rtgs per transaction, not per day.
As always Zim trending will keep you updated on the matter. Just stay tuned.

*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.
