Argentina Peso Plunges To New Record Low

• by Tyler Durden

 It also got some bad news, when the central bank announced it would remove the 25/USD barrier it had imposed in early May to prevent an escalating currency crisis.

Well, this morning, contrary to expectations that the Argentina Peso would rise on the IMF loan, ARS resumed its selloff, and promptly breached the central bank's 25/USD barrier, and plunging 2.3% to 25.55 .

The breach of the barrier shows that confused traders are seeking to find the "fair value" of the ARS after almost a month of living with a virtual cap. The move is also surprising as it contrasts with the positive impact from the IMF deal seen in sovereign bonds market, with Argentina's century bond's due 2117 dropping modestly by 18bps, to 8.02%
