In a session marked by stability in the global market, the dollar closed today (13) with a small appreciation after fluctuating throughout the day. The stock exchange (B3) had the first gain after three consecutive drops.
The commercial dollar ended this fourthsold at R$4,689, up 0.26%. The price started the day low, falling to R$ 4.65 at the beginning of trading, but then began to alternate highs and lows throughout the session. At the maximum of the day, around 10:45 am, it reached R$ 4.70.
This was the first rise after three straight drops. With the performance of today, the US currency accumulates a fall of 1.52% in April. In 2022, the currency drops 15.91%. Around the world, the dollar operated with relative stability, awaiting the meeting of the European Central Bank tomorrow (14th) to define interest rates in the euro zone.
The stock market had a day of recovery. The B3 Ibovespa index closed at 111,782 points, up 0.55%. This was the first rise in the indicator after three sessions of declines.
The Brazilian stock market followed the North American stock exchanges, which closed higher after several days of lows. On the internal factor, the rise in Petrobras shares contributed to the recovery of the Ibovespa, whose Board of Directors met today to define the new president of the state-owned company, and the growth in trade sales in February, which boosted the actions of retail companies.
