The Central Bank announced its first intervention in the exchange rate since the beginning of President Lula’s third term. The action takes place after the dollar closed at R$5.06, in trading this Monday (the 1st).

According to the BC, there will be an additional auction of up to 20,000 currency swap contracts, equivalent to US$1 billion. The movement works as an injection into the futures market to protect the real from excessive variations.

  • Thirteen ministries will be affected by blocking R$2.9 billion from the government
