US dollar three cents higher at 7.965 pesos
The US dollar today rose three cents at banks and exchange offices to close at 7.945 pesos (selling price), continuing its climb after ending three cents higher yesterday.
The "blue" dollar which trades in the informal market was also three cents higher at 10.93 pesos.
Last week, the Central Bank bought 230 million dollars in the foreign exchange market, a figure which was later diminished due to energy import payments and money transfers for the purchase of Apache by YPF oil company.
