Fred Imbert

Bloomberg News reported that Latin America's third-largest economy could get a $30 billion loan from the IMF, lifting Argentina's currency from a record low. The Financial Times and Reuters also reported that Argentina is seeking a credit line. For the year, the peso is down more than 23 percent against the greenback despite Argentina sporting the highest overnight interest rates in the world.
