The second of importance had been made on October 23 when it intervened with US$12.9 million.

The pressures on the dollar exchange rate have been increasing in recent weeks due to the reduction in the income of dollars as a result of the crisis in tourism and the drop in foreign direct investment, but above all due to the uncertainty of how Costa Rica will overcome the fiscal crisis.

For this Tuesday, the dollar exchange rate opened at ¢603, the buy, and ¢609 the sell. At 3:00 pm, the dollar exchange at State and private banks ranged from ¢600 and ¢603 for the buy and ¢614 to ¢616 for the sell.

Economists believe that the pressures for the currency to increase its value will continue to exist in the market until clearer signals are given by the government.
