RadioProfile | The informal dollar rose 7% during the first half of January

The exchange market began 2023 with high temperatures. The informal dollar ended the day on Friday trading at $170 and during the first half of January it has already climbed 7%.

This performance beat the performance of the fixed term in the month, increasing uncertainty about the assumption that the price of the informal currency does not have a ceiling, that is, it is not known what value it can reach. Its variants such as the MEP dollar ended the day on Friday at $340 and the cash with settlement at $349, once again deepening the gap between the two.

Faced with this scenario, the Government seeks to contain the two main risks that may affect the 2023 economic plan, on the one hand the debt in pesos and on the other the lack of dollars.
