EMERGING MARKETS-Argentina markets crash as Macri’s re-election chances drop

08.12.2019 · Posted in Business News Article

policies gripped after conservationist President Mauricio Macri
lost by a much wider-than-expected margin to opposition in

after having fallen to an all-time low of 61.99, as the central
bank used $50 million in its own reserves to defend the peso.
