In this sense, this Friday the Dolar blue quoted with an increase of two pesos to $293 and the stock market dollars registered a downward trend of up to 2%.

Analysts consulted by iProfesional pointed out that it was not a good sign that the MEP and the cash with settlement (CCL) have promptly registered increases yesterday after Massa’s press conference, because “it means that the portfolios continue to dollarize their portfolios.”

In this line, Christian Buteler, financial analyst, pointed out that the MEP and CCL were the thermometer of the response to the announcement made on Wednesday by the Minister, “that they rise between 1.5% and 2% is a bad start”.
