The dollar closed this Thursday (10) stable, after a day that had more highs during the trading session. The operations reflected the reduction of the dollar buying pressure that also occurred in other emerging markets, despite the still unstable day in the global financial markets.
The spot traded currency closed with a positive variation of 0.09%, at R$5.017, far from the maximum of R$5.077 (+1.29%) reached earlier and closer to the intraday minimum (of R$5, 0107, a slight decrease of 0.03%.
The main index of the Brazilian stock market ended lower, but far from the minimum, with fears about inflation and high interest rates in the United States and the lack of progress in negotiations involving the war in Ukraine. The Ibovespa dropped 0.29%, to 113,565.85 points, after losing up to 1.8% on the intraday. The financial volume traded was R$ 28.2 billion.
The rise of Petrobras, after the announcement of a readjustment in fuel prices, and of commodity exporters helped to limit losses. Financial sectors and those linked to the domestic economy pressured the index, in addition to Embraer and Natura, after the disclosure of the quarterly balance sheets of the two companies.
The market also kept an eye on the development of congressional fuel agendas and domestic macroeconomic data.
