The volume traded in the cash segment amounted to US $ 245 million.

During the week, the wholesale exchange rate accumulated a rise of 43 cents, a correction level that had not been repeated since the last week of April this year.

For the fifth consecutive round, the Central Bank closed its daily participation with a favorable balance due to its intervention: it achieved purchases for US $ 20 million in 5 days, a meager amount but that contrasts with the losses suffered since the beginning of the month.

“The proximity of the beginning of the commercialization of the next harvest, added to the need for pesos that is verified in the market, seems to have tipped the balance in favor of the official strategy that has managed, at least until now, to stop the permanent drain of reserves to supply the market, “said analyst Gustavo Quintana.

The parallel cut a miniracha of two consecutive rises on Thursday and ended unchanged. Let us remember that the informal dollar came from climbing $ 3 between Tuesday and Wednesday, after falling $ 4 last week, conditioned by a greater demand for pesos, something common at this time of year, before the payment of the Christmas bonus, plus the need for cash before the festive dates of Christmas and New Years.
