According to the last poll on macroeconomic expectations put together by Cronista, analysts expect the dollar to stay below the AR $20 peso mark in 2017 — specifically at AR $18.99. This prediction is in line with the Central Bank’s expectations for expectations over the next year and would represent a 17 percent increase, lower than this year’s 20 percent rise.

Regarding their expectations for the end of 2016, analysts expect Argentina’s currency to clock in at AR $16.21 to 1 USD. The number represents a large adjustment compared to previous expectations noted from November’s poll, when they said the peso would finish 2016 at AR $15.80 to the dollar.

19 economic analysts from the country’s main banks, universities, foundations and think tanks took part in the survey.
