In order to avoid a greater fall, the Central Reserve bank tried to stabilize the index with the purchase of US$ 88.5 million.

Analysts indicated that this situation can be related to seasonal factors and that there are no reasons for Peruvian exporters to panic with respect to losing their competitiveness.
