MEXICO CITY — At the opening of foreign exchange operations Monday, Mexico City banks were selling the U.S. dollar at a maximum price of 19.04 pesos, nine centavos over last Friday’s closing price, and were purchasing it at a minimum of 18.24 pesos per dollar.
The euro reached a maximum sale price of 21.42 pesos, 13 centavos more than the end of the previous session, while the yen was traded at up to 0.193 pesos.
According to Banamex, stock index, oil prices and currencies — except the yen — such as the Swiss franc and the U.S. dollar retreated as a result of a new wave of international risk aversion.
Mexico’s Central Bank (Banxico) reported that the exchange rate to settle liabilities in foreign currency payable in the country stands at 18.5046 pesos.
Meanwhile, Interbank Interest Rates (TIIE) at 28 and 91 days are at 4.0950 and 4.2016 percent respectively, both with gains of 0.0081 and 0.016 percentage points.
