Argentine peso opens 1.46 pct weaker at 24.7 to the U.S. dollar

BUENOS AIRES, May 18 (Reuters) - Argentina’s peso opened 1.46 percent weaker at 24.7 per U.S. dollar on Friday and the central bank offered to sell up to $5 billion in the foreign exchange market at 25 to the greenback, traders said.

The bank made the same offer on Wednesday and Thursday but it did not intervene as the peso remained stronger than 25 per dollar.
