Among the factors that spurred the stock market in January, we can mention a strong recovery in international markets, a product of expectations of a shift in expectations of interest rate growth in the US.
The Fed left the rates unchanged on Wednesday and withdrew its commitment to "new gradual increases." The President of the institution, Jerome PovellHe said the arguments for increasing the rate of the last weeks were "weakened".
"This has allowed significant capital reflux for emerging markets, including Brazil's large force to take Jair Bolsoran into the Presidency, which has made it possible for Argentina to spill over" was analyzed by the director of MB Inversiones, Diego Martinez Burzaco.
In this context of important reflections, Argentina was one of the markets that grew most in the world in January, but because it was even hardest hit in 2018.
"There were fairly unfair prices in relation to company bases and, in particular, return risk from bonds", added Burzaco.
At the local level, it also helped the Central Bank to keep the exchange rate in order to reduce the reference interest rate faster, which ended in January below 54% per annum.
In the same market, analysts are cautious with the increase registered in January and suggest them to be "cautious", because it still remains remarkable in the fact that it was January 2018 and how quickly they changed expectations in the opposite direction, with a severe devaluation of the pesos .
