According to the bank, this new consecutive rising trend is a result of the change in valuation of resources during the period, representing an increase of $225 million. However, $26 million were bought by the federal government and deducted from this amount.

The weekly positive variation resulted in an annual accumulated increase of international assets totaling $940 million on April 8.

Last week, the monetary base, including banknotes, coins and bank deposits in Banxico’s current account, fell by 16.7 billion pesos ($957.1 million), totaling a balance of 1.1 trillion pesos. This amount meant an annual variation of 14.3 percent and a decrease of 46.8 billion pesos during 2016.
