“The black economy is bigger than the white economy, and it’s slowing down. So, the demand for the white dollar is driven by the liquidation of the white. Let’s remember that the countryside does not buy black,” a city operator commented to Scope in reference to this marked gap between blue and stock exchange rates.
For his part, the economist Federico Gluten told this medium that this difference lies in the fact that today “There is no demand in the parallel market that sustains the rise, but rather, sales are recorded, despite the multiple restrictions launched by the monetary authorities.”
“As there are fewer possibilities of carry trade due to the latest regulations, there is no glimpse of a rise in operations in the blue that could lead to financials, in addition to being close to the end of the month and absorbing currencies in the MULC, it makes sense to maintain stable, even if there is more supply, going down”he added.
In any case, he warned that this situation “I don’t think it will last long since the difference with the financiers is up to 10%, so next week it will rise and get closer to the MEP, as is expected in the medium term.”
