September 30, 2011

Sept. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Colombia’s central bank said that it will begin buying and selling dollars in auctions to curb the peso’s volatility.

The bank will auction $200 million in the spot market when the peso’s 10-day moving average changes by more than 2 percent, the bank said in a statement today.

The bank said the measure was a response to “extreme volatility” in financial markets.
