Thus, the sol is already the currency that appreciated the most in the last week against the dollar. However, so far in 2021, the figure is reversed, and that is that the exchange rate advanced 8.32% and 9.13% in the last 12 months.
Internationally, the safe haven currency was heading for its first weekly decline against its major peers since early last month as global risk appetite rebounded.
The dollar index fell 0.1% to 93.9 and was down 0.2% for the week in what would be its first weekly loss in six weeks. The dollar tends to rise when investors seek safety.
