    Argentine congress passed capital market reform bill; Merval up 6%

    Argentina's benchmark Merval stock index reacted strongly and was up nearly 6% on Wednesday afternoon.

    The Argentine Congress passed the government's capital markets reform bill on Wednesday, seeking to boost a troubled economy by reducing the power of market regulators and loosening restrictions on some funds investing in Argentina. Investors and economists consider the reform bill key to President Mauricio Macri's effort to boost investment in the country, whose capital markets are far smaller than regional peers.
