Dollar today in Colombia
Judging from today’s opening, it is possible that the dollar will maintain the downward trend that it registered during a good part of November and that led him to lose more than 220 pesos in a few weeks.
This new decline in the dollar comes after several countries of the OPEC + alliance supported a gradual increase in the oil production starting in January as a commitment to reach an agreement this Tuesday on the level of adequate pumping in the coming months, the Russian agency TASS reported.
“Some countries, including Russia, want to gradually increase (production) starting in January, ”said a source from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC).
Those producing nations defend this position on the grounds that the situation in the oil market is more favorable than last spring, he added.
Other countries would like to extend the current cut of 7.7 million barrels per day (mbd) “several months” to 2021. On the table is an extension of three months or more.
