In the last round of Sergio Massa's tenure as economy minister and Miguel Angel Pesce as president of the Central Bank, the government applied a 5.9% devaluation of the official exchange rate that brought the wholesale dollar to $385.
This is the most marked jump for a day since August 14, when after having finished third in the PASO Massa introduced a 22% devaluation. The curious thing is that this time the increase in the exchange rate did not occur at the beginning of the round, but occurred almost at the end, with a correction of 21 pesos on the day.
With this rise, the so-called retail dollar trades at $405 at Banco Nación. This dollar exists only for reference, as savers can only access the currency with the PAIS tax surcharge, priced at $968 at retail banks.
