The increase was registered in the price of the dollar in the wholesale Monex market, where transactions between financial entities are carried out.

The increase is already reflected in the exchange applied at the banks.

The reference rate by the Central Bank (BCCR) this morning, August 31, was set at ¢569.54 today,  for the buy and ¢575.67 for the sell.

The exchange rate could also start to reflect the arrival of the new president, Rodrigo Cubero, to the Central Bank, who assured that during his term of office the price of the currency would have a greater float, both upwards and downwards.

According to the BCCR, the aim of this variability is to continue to advance in the inflation targeting scheme, where all the exchange and monetary policy is subject to reaching an objective for this indicator.
