Argentina holds Leliq interest rate floor steady at 63%
BUENOS AIRES, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Argentina's central bank said on Friday that it will maintain the floor underneath its benchmark Leliq interest rate at 63% to help protect the country's wobbly peso currency.
In a monthly report, the bank said that it would hold the rate steady for December due to the "importance of sustaining a real positive return for savers". Argentina had lowered the rate floor level at the end of October.
The Leliq rate, which is based on daily auctions of the short-term notes, was 63.002% on Friday.
