US dollar climbs to 7.89 pesos, 'blue' drops to 10.55 pesos
The US currency today climbed half a cent to 7.89 pesos at Buenos Aires City banks and exchange offices.
Meanwhile, the so called "blue" dollar dropped 65 cents to 10.55 pesos, following an increase in the purchase of greenbacks in the official market with the AFIP tax agency authorizing new transactions in the beginning of the month.
On the last business day last week prior to the 4-day Carnival break, greenbacks in the informal market plunged 20 cents on Friday hitting 11.25 pesos (selling price).
