In wholesale operations, the Mexican currency is located at 20.85 units per dollar this morning and is equivalent to a depreciation of the peso of 1.2% or 25 cents compared to Tuesday.
With a higher perception of risk
With this, the peso becomes the currency that loses the most ground against the dollar during the day, while the Brazilian real is in second place, with a depreciation of 1.1%, according to information from the Bloomberg agency.
Both currencies lead the losses due to a greater perception of internal risk in their countries, explained Gabriela Siller, chief economist at Banco Base.
This Tuesday, the Chamber of Senators approved in general and in particular the reform initiative to the Electricity Industry Law proposed by the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, so it now goes to the Executive for constitutional purposes.
Yesterday Pemex also announced that Fitch Ratings, one of the three main rating agencies in the world, will stop providing services as of tomorrow, which was considered by Siller as «an economic policy error, as it damages the reputation of Pemex and the government ”, after Fitch was one of the rating agencies with the strongest hand when evaluating the oil company.

At BBVA it is offered at 21.06 and at Inbursa at 21.30 units.
