Venezuelan companies will be allowed to exchange a maximum of $350,000 per month on a currency market that opened last week, with foreign exchange for individuals also limited, the central bank said on Monday.

The foreign exchange market opened for trading on Wednesday, ending weeks of uncertainty after the government outlawed bond trading for exchange purposes by brokerages after the bolivar currency crashed to 8.2 per dollar in May. (Reporting by Patricia Rondon; Editing by Andrea Ricci)
