Peso plunges amid wider emerging markets selloff
On 6 September, the Colombian peso ended the day at 3,086 per USD, weakening 6.4% over the same day in August. The peso has fallen 3.4% on a year-to-date basis and 6.0% from same day last year amid a wider sell-off in emerging markets.
Argentina’s rapidly deteriorating currency crisis has weighed on the Colombian peso and the currencies of other regional players. The ongoing turmoil in the Turkish lira, the intensifying U.S.–China trade war, the U.S. Federal Reserve’s move to tighten monetary policy, and falling oil prices have also spurred a rapid sell-off in emerging market currencies.
