Near the end of the week, free dollars continue to rise . This Thursday the blue dollar increases 1 peso and reaches $ 135 . The cash with liqui or CCL, the operation that allows you to get foreign currency from the country, does not lose footprint: it already exceeds $ 132 and thus marks a new record .
With the market still digesting the latest measures from the Central Bank, which this week went hunting and blocked the accounts of 4,600 digital collectors in an attempt to decompress the demand on the retail dollar, the dollars outside the control of the Government do not slow down.
The measure does not seem to have served to bring calm to the square. Yesterday the CCL rose 2% and today it maintains the same trend. It increases 0.9% to $ 132.60. In this case, it already reaches the highest point so far this year. The same does not happen with the blue, which is still five pesos below the record of $ 140 that it touched at the end of July, before the agreement for the debt is closed.

For its part, the MEP dollar, which allows you to buy foreign currency through the Buenos Aires stock market, increased 0.8% and reached $ 128.65.
In the official market, the currency maintains its daily rate of devaluation. The wholesaler, the segment in which banks and large companies operate, rose 0.1%, as it has usually done, and stood at $ 73.53. While in the average of the banks carried out by the Central, the retailer increases 5 cents compared to yesterday's closing and touches $ 77.74. With the PAIS tax surcharge, the solidarity dollar is consolidated around $ 101 .
For its part , country risk , the JP Morgan indicator that measures at what rate Argentina should borrow, increases 0.9%, reaching 2,167 basis points , which brings it back to the levels prior to the debt agreement.
In the stock market, the Merval fell 0.3% after yesterday's 2% rise. In New York, Argentine shares are mostly down.
