In the month of April, the behavior of the dollar in Colombia has led to the Colombian peso being the currency that has appreciated the most compared to the dollar in the world.

This has had to do with various factors, both national and international, that have influenced the dollar’s depreciation worldwide.

“The Colombian peso has appreciated more than currencies have appreciated against the dollar in the world, that is, we have that effect that is a global DXY effect falling, the dollar losing ground, but we also have an effect that accompanies this fall of the dollar in the world that makes us appreciate even more than what the currencies are gaining against the North American currency”, said David Cubides research manager of Fiduciary Alliance and Securities Alliance .

“Although the euro has appreciated against the dollar, in the case of the Colombian peso we find that our currency has appreciated against the European currency.
