In interbank transactions, the currency in Chile ended the day at US $ 684, a slight increase of US $ 0.3 compared to yesterday's close.
The last day of the week ended with the dollar in Chile relatively stable despite the increase of the geopolitical tension between the United States and Iran, that had like last point an order of attack of Trump, that was later suspended.
In interbank operations, the exchange rate ended the day at $ 684.00, which represents a slight increase of $ 0.3 in relation to the closing of yesterday.
As a result, the cross currency cuts a small downtrend of three days and accrued a loss of $ 16 during the week, equivalent to 2.30%.
In the global dollar, the truth is that the probability that the Federal Reserve of the United States reduce the rate in July increased.
The 0.5% drop in the Dollar Index – which measures the US currency against a basket of currencies – in the last two days was offset by the heightened fear in the markets of an American confrontation with Iran.
With the passing of the hours, however, the reference ticket deepened the losses of the previous days, accumulating more than 1% on three consecutive days. At its current level, the multi-lateral price of the currency is at its lowest in three months.
At the level of emerging currencies, the results are mixed. This is replicated in Latin America, with losses led by the Mexican peso and advances led by the Argentine peso.
The pair of Chilean-dollar pesos ignored the international decline of the US currency, the market explained, given the closing of positions and profits, given the losses of the previous days.
According to Francisco Schneider, manager of the Fynsa FX distribution table, there was an effect due to the closing of Chilean peso positions, since it is Friday, but it does not rule out that the dollar could continue to fall in the short term.
