Exchange pressures: why the blue dollar is rising

They also described that “the monthly devaluation is not yet equal to the level of inflation, making Argentina still expensive. The North American currency was adjusted monthly with devaluations of 2%, for the month of May these values ​​were close to the measured inflation of 4.2%.”.

In turn, the economist Gustavo Ber explained: “In the midst of a slower pace – and greater irregularity – in BCRA purchases, Expectations grow due to the dynamics of reserves given the current lower accumulation of reserves and the prospects for the usual lower supply of foreign currency in the second half”.
