Black market dollar rises again

With the start of marches and gatherings on the first anniversary of the explosion of the Port of Beirut, the dollar on the black market rose reaching 21,200 – 21,300 Lebanese pounds per dollar

Lebanon is experiencing a violent economic collapse that threatens its stability. The World Bank described the crisis as the deepest in modern history.

Lebanese banks set the price of 3,850 pounds to the dollar when withdrawing the dollar to small depositors, and it is still valid today.

The Syndicate of Money Changers in Lebanon fixed the pricing of the dollar exchange rate with a moving margin between the price of 3,850 pounds for purchase, and 3,900 pounds for sale, as a maximum.

The exchange rate of the dollar in the Central Bank of Lebanon remains at 1507.5 pounds per dollar.
