Dollar black market still on the rise

On Sunday, the US dollar exchange rate against the Lebanese pound on the black market reached 23,200 LBP for sale and 23,300 LBP for purchase.

It was traded yesterday evening between 23,050 and 23,150 LBP 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.
