    Lack of investor confidence sees the Argentine Peso fall 3.11% against the dollar

    The central bank sold about US$ 400 million in the foreign exchange market as of early Wednesday afternoon, traders said

    Argentina’s peso currency closed down 3.11% on Wednesday at an all-time low of 21.2 per U.S. dollar, even as the central bank continued selling dollars to try to halt the slide of the local currency, traders said. The currency’s sustained weakening showed a lack of investor confidence in Latin America’s third largest economy, which is blighted by one of the world’s highest inflation rates.
