In retail operations, the dollar sells for 20.67 pesos at CitiBanamex windows, 25 cents more expensive than yesterday.

The exchange rate has overcome the resistance of 20 pesos, given a greater perception of risk with respect to Mexico, due to the direct effects of the cold wave in several northern states and the response of the federal government to the event.

Given this, the peso is the most depreciated currency in the basket of 16 main crosses of the dollar, explained this morning Gabriela Siller, chief economist at Banco Base.
