The behaviour of the dollar and international reserves

The tourist dollar -which carries the 30% surcharge for the COUNTRY tax- rose 45 cents this Friday to 86.91 pesos. During the week, the dollar with surcharge climbed 54 cents and the official one increased 41 cents. The dollar with liquidation (CCL) – obtained from the purchase and sale of shares or bonds – rose 28 cents to 89.09 pesos, so the gap with the wholesaler closed on Friday at 37.3%. BCRA’s International Reserves rose Friday $19 million to $43,651 million. However, during the week the monetary authority’s coffers lost $84 million as a result of Monday’s sharp declines.
