US dollar climbs to 7.79 pesos, 'blue' jumps to 11.80 pesos
The US dollar today ended one cent and a half higher at 7.79 pesos at main banks and exchange offices. Meanwhile, the so called “blue” dollar jumped two cents to 11.80 pesos due to almost no trading operations in the informal market.
Meanwhile international reserves continued on a downfall, hitting U$S 27 billions this week despite some significant dollar-purchase operations at the Central Bank.
The Central Bank later announced a rise in foreign currency reserves, recording an increase of 17 million dollars compared to yesterday. The reserves, according to Bank data, amount to a total of 27.82bn dollars
