At the regional level, Latin American currencies and stock exchanges operated unevenly on Wednesday at the beginning of the day in which the market and investors are attentive to Joe Biden’s oath as the new president of the United States and the repercussions of his measures for the largest economy in the world and in the region.
According to Reuters, the dollar fell for the third consecutive session as greater confidence boosted demand for riskier assets. Although the world will be watching Biden’s inauguration in Washington, the operators are more focused on their policies than on the ceremony. The US stock markets, which are a benchmark for those in Latin America, opened higher.
