USD LBP Black Market – 9/4/2021

Today, Friday, April 9, 2021, the USD LBP black market applications did not update the Lira rate yet as of 9:30 AM, Lebanon local time.

Yesterday, the USD price increased by 200 to 250 points.

The black market apps kept increasing the Dollar price throughout the day until they reached One Dollar = 12,250 LBP.

The app’s behavior was very suspicious. The notifications kept on coming every 40 minutes or so, with most of the time a USD price increase of 25 to 50 points.

On the other hand, no political breakthrough is expected soon. The stalemate is here to stay, and it seems for long.
