The recent report on money market strategy of SSI Securities Company shows that in August 2020 deposit interest rates have decreased by 0.2-4 percentage points for short terms and 0.2 percentage points for long terms. Accumulated in 8 months, deposit interest rates decreased by a total of 0.5-2.1 percentage points for all terms compared to the end of last year.
