It may have a more or less strong but bullish speed”. “We should hit $300 before the end of the year without a doubt”he warned.
For his part, the economist Federico Glustein, expanded that “apparently since that rise towards the end of September, the blue dollar remained below $295without tensions from macro policies, new prices promoted so as not to devalue, stocks or exchange restrictions or inflation close to 100%”.
In this regard, he indicated that “it is to be expected that the demand for blue will grow in the short term due to several factors: end-of-year bonuses and/or Christmas bonuses, outbound tourism and dollarization of portfoliosalthough this effect could occur closer to the end of the month, already with these variables in action, placing it initially above $295 to break above $300, around December“.
