El dólar sube por intervención del Banco Central tras tocar récord

El Banco Central intervino en el mercado y frenó la suba del dólar

Según un promedio realizado por la autoridad monetaria, la moneda norteamericana finalizó a $20,06 para la punta compradora y a $20,61 para la vendedora.En los mostradores del Banco de la Nación, el dólar cerró a $20,60, tras cotizar a $20,45 por la mañana.

En el segmento mayorista se registro la misma tendencia alcista subiendo 13 centavos para venderse a $ 20,34.

Tras el cierre de los mercados, los economistas Daniel Artana y Emmanuel Álvarez Agis confrontaron posturas respecto a la evolución del dólar en el mercado local y, en particular, sobre la intervención del Banco Central con la venta de 30 millones de dólares para controlar la suba de la divisa estadounidense. Con muy poco dinero en comparación con los volúmenes operados, apenas u$s 20 millones, la entidad conducida por Federico Sturzengger se contentó con dejar correr al dólar y señalizar que no permanecerá al margen del mercado si la velocidad de las subas le parecen excesivas.

En tanto, en el mercado mayorista la divisa tocó los $20,44 pero 10 minutos antes del final bajó a $20,40, precio al que cerró.

Por encima de ese promedio se ubicaron las cotizaciones en las ventas por mostrador en los bancos Francés y Supervielle, en $ 20,75 para la venta; mientras que en el Itaú fue de $ 20,72.

Recordemos que la autoridad monetaria había salido a la cancha el lunes pasado - por primera vez en más de siete meses - a ponerle un techo momentáneo al dólar, con la venta de u$s 30 millones.

El volumen negociado en el segmento de contado fue superior al del miércoles, al llegar a U$S 822 millones. Con ese valor, el BCRA volvió a vender, por lo que la divisa bajó nuevamente, hasta los $20,40 al cierre de esta nota.

"La intervención (de este lunes del Banco Central en el mercado) fue para frenar o decir hasta acá llegó, fue una señal clara", enfatizó el economista.

"Fue intensa la actividad del Banco Central en la rueda con la finalidad de recortar las subas del tipo de cambio", señaló Gustavo Quintana, operador de PR Corredores de Cambio, quien puntualizó que "la acción oficial hizo retroceder los precios del dólar (mayorista) desde máximos en $ 20,45 hasta mínimos en $ 20,35 por unidad".
