The blue dollar woke up: it scored its first weekly rise in a month

Analyst Christian Buteler raised Ambit that “the rise of the blue is related to the greater demand by workers who are passing their bonus to dollars as a result of the drop that the parallel ticket had registered in the previous weeks.”

Remember that the blue dollar was down $ 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 Year. Therefore, he had accumulated three consecutive weeks with losses.

Thus, so far in December, the informal dollar registers a decline of $ 1.50. It should be remembered that in November the parallel dollar showed a rise of $ 4 (+ 2%), after climbing $ 11.50 (+ 6.2%) in October.

Likewise, in the accumulated of 2021 the blue dollar shows an appreciation of $ 34 (less than 20%), well below the accumulated inflation of 2021, above 45%.

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. In August, it registered its smallest increase since March, climbing just $ 1 (+ 0.6%), and then going up $ 4.50 in September (+ 2.5%).
