After suffering its first drop in 5 days on Monday, the parallel dollar increased by $ 3 in the last two days. Last week it had skyrocketed $ 8.50.
Factors such as high inflation, exchange controls, fiscal deficit and firm country risk, to which is added the political intrigue for the mid-term elections on November 14, drive the blue dollar, which, so far in October, registers an advance $ 11 (5.9%). In any case, in the year $ 31 appreciated (less than 20%), well below the accumulated inflation of 2021, close to 40%.
Let us remember that during September, the informal dollar rose $ 4.50 (+ 2.5%), after posting its lowest rise since March in August, climbing just $ 1 (+ 0.6%). After hitting a low of $ 139 in early April, the parallel dollar increased $ 9 in April (6.4%), $ 7 (4.7%) in May, $ 11 (7%) in June, and $ 12.50 (+ 7.4%) in July.
