Brazilian Real Drops Further on Risk Aversion

The Brazilian real touched the weakest level in a month as risk aversion remained predominant in today’s trading session globally, since equities and commodities markets continued to follow a bearish trajectory in most of the

key-economic regions around the world.

Brazil’s real suffered another impact today as China’s lending restrictions announced last week continue to influence risk levels in trading markets globally. Commodities, responsible for a good share of Brazil’s international trade continued to tumble in Asia and Europe, decreasing attractiveness for the real which lost sharply versus a more appealing U.S. dollar as traders searched for safety.

USD/BRL closed at 1.7895 today from an opening rate of 1.7715.
