Argentine central bank sells $176 mln in pre-election interventions to calm peso

BUENOS AIRES, Oct 24 (Reuters) - Argentina’s central bank auctioned $176 million in two foreign exchange market interventions on Thursday, traders said, as policymakers tried to stabilize the wobbly peso currency ahead of the Oct. 27 presidential election.

A third intervention was expected later in the day, traders said.
