Despite the devaluation that has been seen in recent weeks, in the second half of the year the dollar may face a new rebound due to various aspects, explains Juan David Ballén, director of analysis and strategy at Casa de Bolsa.

The social reforms of the National Government will also have an influence, especially the pension, which will be discussed again once the sessions of the Congress of the Republic are installed on July 20.
»In both cases, things are looking good for the moment. As inflation is falling in the United States, the Fed has less pressure to raise rates, and at the internal level, the Government has lost governability, which generates the expectation that, if it decides to continue with the process of the reforms, it will have to moderate them”, assures Ballén.
