The blue dollar maintains its upward path for the third day in a row, one peso per day. This Thursday it sells for $ 133, against $ 132 the day before.
While the blue rose, the so-called dollar counted with liquid (CCL), which is the operation that allows dollars to be obtained outside the country through stock market operations, began to decline. The CCL had jumped on Wednesday but this Thursday it fell almost 1% to $ 128.91. The Stock Market dollar, which works in the same way but is used to acquire foreign currency in the country, fell 0.7%, to $ 24.81.
In any case, the CCL rose 9% since August 4, when the agreement with the creditors for the debt was formalized. The end of the negotiation had a temporary impact of a few days, and then this price resumed the upward path.
Meanwhile, the wholesale dollar, which is the one operated by banks, companies and the Central, continues its slow daily rise. It rises 6 cents, to $ 73.10 and the gap with the blue is 82%. In banks, the solidarity dollar, of which US $ 200 can be bought per month, is listed at $ 100.10, although in some entities it rises to $ 100.50.
Country risk, like the dollar, has already forgotten the positive effect of the debt agreement. It is up 0.5%, to 2,118 basis points.
