International reserves lost $159 million and the parallel dollar rose 3.4%

The BCRA’s International Reserves rose Friday $4 million to $43.41 billion, although, in the week’s accumulated, they lost $159 million due to Wednesday’s big sale. The blue dollar remained this Friday at its historical high of 122 pesos, which made the week 3.4% higher because the last obstacles to the purchase of dollars in the formal circuits caused the exchange pressure to shift to the parallel market. The stock market dollars rose 0.6% during the week. The “CCL” dollar closed at 115.35 pesos and the “MEP or Bolsa” dollar at 112.98 pesos.
