Wonky financial game of spot the difference, Peru currency edition

Can you spot the difference between these two excerpts from Peru financial press in the last few days?

1) Julio Velarde, head of Peru’s Central Bank (BCRP), Friday April 27th:

“We are more worried about a strong rebound in the dollar.”

2) Peru Central Bank, Monday April 30th:

LIMA (Dow Jones)–The Central Reserve Bank of Peru said Monday it will increase reserve requirements and create a new reserve requirement as a preventive measure in order to offset increased liquidity.

By the way, it’s a 0.5% hike that kicks in as of tomorrow morning. So when you’ve spotted the difference pop your answers on a postcard and send them to: 

Greg Samsa,
Pacific University,
Peru.
