Economists estimate that will yield the gap between the official dollar and the parallel
January 20, 2013
The gap between the official dollar and the parallel “should not be expanded in the coming months regarding the values that were recorded in the latter part of 2012,” about 30 percent.
“While it is expected that the parallel exchange rate continue to increase vis to vis with the devaluation of the official, the spreads between the two quotes should not be expanded in the coming months from the values recorded in the latter part of 2012 (around 32% / 33%),” economist Dante Sica said.
According to a recent report by the consultant, “the pressures in the foreign exchange market should yield at least partially, for reasons of both demand and supply.”
“In the first case, since seasonal factors disappear (tourism peak usually occurs in January giving intensity in the coming months),” he said.
To Sica, “by the supply side, the liquidation of the thick crop (in April, May or more likely, given the delay in the harvest would be causing excessive rainfall) would operate in the same direction.”
