The blue dollar falls this Friday. The parallel notes a slight decrease of 50 cents to settle at $206 for the purchase and $209 for sale, with which the gap is reduced by just over 100% compared to the wholesale official and around 90% compared to the retail average.
With this last variation, the informal price partially moderates the advance that it had registered during yesterday’s trading session, although it continues very close to its all-time high, that is of $210 for sale.
The parallel price has been posting moderate ups and downs in recent days, remaining within the range of $206 and $209, approximately, as a consequence of the variations in the demand for currency in the informal market.
Meanwhile, the financial dollars show moderate rises on the side of the MEP with AL30, which advances 0.6% and is close to $202, while the cash with settlement (CCL) that is operated freely, records ups and downs of 1% and is listed between $207 and $210, according to a basket of company shares.
The official dollar retailer advanced to $109.21 in the average of financial entities, while the wholesaler closed the day at $103.84, seven cents above the previous close, again within the daily devaluation range that the Central Bank has been validating lately.
In the wholesale market, a relative balance between authorized supply and demand was once again observed. Thus, the Central closed the wheel with another neutral balance after intervention in the official exchange market, for which it maintains net purchases for $200 million so far this month.
