1 dollar

  • BLUE $295 without variation
  • MEP $292.11 +4.23% weekly
  • CCL $299.57 +5.52% weekly

During the past week, the fragile calm in the exchange market with a strong rebound mainly in the CCL. The reason would be the exit of foreign investment funds that continue with bonds in pesos but also lack of specific definitions by the economy.

In the past week dollars began to enter the agro-export sector and the economy minister announced the arrival of new loans from international organizations for this week, something that will be well received by the market to reinforce reserves.

Dollars have room to go down but it always depends on the signals and measures carried out by the BCRA and EconomyWe must watch carefully if the bullish movement verified since Wednesday ends and we return to values ​​below $290 (most likely scenario) or else the rise accelerates and everyone returns to exceed $300.

  • Fixed term UVA: 7.4% for the current month, 6% and 5.5% estimated for the following months

Its performance in dollars presented a decline influenced not only by the exchange rate jump of the dollar but also by falls in Argentine papers listed in the USA.

American market: Last week we mentioned the possibility of taking profit and it came. After the rally experienced and a dollar that began to strengthen again with the Fed having to sustain the rate hike to control inflation, the decline may deepen.

4- Bonuses
