The price of the US dollar in Peru was stable in the informal or parallel market today, Thursday, April 14, 2022, while the markets remained closed for the Easter holidays. The exchange rate rose to S/ 3,710 for purchase and S/ 3,745 for sale, according to exchange houses in Lima.
On the other hand, in the interbank market, the greenback closed at S/ 3,735, according to data provided by the Central Reserve Bank of Peru (BCR).
The monetary entity detailed that the dollar has a decline of 6.41% so far in 2022, compared to the result recorded at the end of last year (S / 3,991).
The foreign currency registered an appreciation of 10.28% at the end of 2021 due to the impact of political uncertainty and doubts about the economic outlook due to the new variants of the coronavirus.
At a regional level, the markets of Latin America closed disparate on Wednesday on the eve of the holidays on Thursday and Friday for Easter, with forces found between the rise in the price of crude oil and new data in the United States that show more inflationary pressures.
According to the Reuters agency, some assets reacted to the rebound in oil prices, of almost 4%, due to the disappointing prospects of the talks between Russia and Ukraine, which encouraged fears of supply shortages, despite the fact that stocks of US crude rose more than 9 million barrels in the most recent week.
But on the other side, emerging markets were digesting the recent data on US producer prices, which rose more than expected in March, amid rising demand for services, suggesting that inflation could remain high for a while.
