Argentina's central bank said on Thursday that it would allow a managed float of the peso currency and abandon its current “uniform daily devaluation” strategy as it seeks to adapt its monetary policy amid sharpening economic turmoil.

The move comes when the gap between the official exchange rate and the rate quoted in the country's informal currency markets close to 93% due to the distrust of investors and strong black market demand for dollars.

Among a series of measures, the bank said it would block senior public officials from buying and accumulating foreign currency and would move to facilitate the purchase of Chinese Yuan against Argentine pesos for foreign trade operations.

A central bank source said that the entity would offer trades at 76.95 pesos per dollar at Friday's open, around 0.91% weaker than the close on Thursday.

Argentina's government had recently tightened capital controls, which had sparked investor jitters and raised concerns about economic growth prospects. The controls were first imposed last year to stem a decline in foreign currency reserves.

A second bank source said that the plan for pricing on Friday was part of a move to “abandon uniform devaluations and introduce greater volatility”, adding that it meant that the daily price change would be less uniform going forward.

The bank also increased the important overnight repo rate to 24%, from the current 19%.

    Dearest Güeón,

    Knowing your very special character — I would greatly recommend the knowledgable and quote filled Terence Hill as a very suitable partner who has an exciting and dynamic entertaining lifestyle:

    Although he's an unemployed VIRGIN living in his mother's BASEMENT, you can't deny he'd make a marvelous significant partner that could educate you in weird Latin quotations and he has an incredible appreciation of inflatable sex toys.

    I think Güeón and Terence would indeed be a marvelous matched odd couple!

    Here in Chicureo, this evening's meal was chicken cordon bleu with dijon cream sauce, honey glazed baby carrots and butter sautéed home garden rapini — accompanied with ma mariée enchanteresse favorite Viña Casas del Bosque Reserva Sauvignon Blanc.

    “Rudeness you've now painfully learned — does has its severe malicious consequences and payback is truly an evil bitch.” ~ Chicureo

    Cheers!
