Thus, the gap with the wholesale dollar stands at 87%, after touching 95% on Friday, and marking a maximum of 104% in mid-May.

Over the past week, the blue jumped $ 9 amid dollar bank account lockouts at “unusual moves”, made by the “digital collectors”, who then used the informal market to carry out the “pure” (buy in the official and sell in parallel taking advantage of the existing exchange gap).

Since the quarantine started, the blue accumulates a hike of $ 49.50 (from $ 85.50 on March 20), product, among other causes, of greater restrictions to operate, not only in the Single Market and Free of Exchange, but also for operations with the CCL dollar and the MEP.
