Dollar exchange rate around ‎16,900 Lebanese pounds

After it hit news records reaching 17850 pounds, the black market dollar exchange rate has retreated, this morning, to 16,850 pounds for purchase and 16,900 pounds for sale against one dollar.

Yesterday, some Lebanese areas witnessed demonstrations, protests and roadblocks, while some shops closed, unable to work in light of the insanely rise of the 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, a while ago, 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.
