Today banks present an average price of S / 3.51 for buying and S / 3.65 for selling the dollar.

According to Bloomberg, in Peru the dollar only registers a marginal growth of 0.04%, but it keeps registering the highest price reported since 2002.
At the beginning of the day, there was a greater demand for the US currency in the local market before global concerns about economic recovery in the middle of the pandemic.
Even the dollar reached S / 3,595, at the interbank level, in Peru. However, Reuters indicates that this price later fell due to an apparent improvement in trade relations between the United States and China.
