It is likely that this week any increase in the exchange rate is more closely related to a strengthening of the dollar than to a weakening of the peso, due to the probability that the Fed will raise its benchmark rate in December, said Base Bank in a report.

Also, since last week the market has favored the dollar given the greater probability that the US Senate will approve the tax reform before the end of the year.
