Dollar today: how much it closed at this Monday, December 20

The saving dollar or solidarity dollar -which includes 30% of the COUNTRY tax, and a 35% on account of the Income Tax- advanced seven cents to $ 177.56.

Wholesale dollar

The wholesale dollar rose 15 cents to $ 102.13, with the constant regulation of the BCRA. In a day with low business volume, the North American currency operated very laterally around the official regulation values.

Last 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 sixth consecutive round, the Central Bank closed its daily participation with a favorable balance due to its intervention: it achieved purchases for US $ 25 million in 5 days, a meager amount but that contrasts with the losses suffered since the beginning of the month.

Dollar CCL

The CCL dollar -traded with the Bonar 2030, the most liquid in the square- it fell 0.3% to $ 204.26, so the gap was 100%.

Dollar MEP

While, on the contrary, the dollar MEP rose 0.6% to $ 200.41, so it exceeded the value of the blue dollar. Last week the so-called dollar Stock market came to operate $ 7 below the blue.

The blue dollar finished flat at $ 200 for the second day in a row after showing a 50-cent rise for much of the day, according to a survey of Ambit in the Black Market of Foreign Currency.

The informal dollar came from rising in three of the last four days, and during the day it came to operate at $ 200.50, a value that had already been registered at the beginning of the month.

Thus, the gap with the wholesale official closed the day at 95.8%, after reaching the highest level in two weeks during the day.

Recall that the parallel dollar accumulated throughout the last week a rally of $ 3.50, representing its first rise in a month.

Despite the new advance, so far in December, the informal dollar registers a decline of $ 1.50. It should be remembered that in November it had shown a rise of $ 4 (+ 2%), after climbing $ 11.50 (+ 6.2%) in October.
