the Ibovespa It almost followed last week’s gains, but it hardly failed. And the stock exchange, which today exceeded 109 thousand points, ended with a slight decrease in the final adjustments. Offshore, investors adopted a more conservative stance, awaiting decisions from various central banks and information about the micron variant of the coronavirus, and ended up affecting business here.
Among the biggest gains on the Ibovespa day were health stocks and Vale (VALE3), the most heavily traded on Monday. The rise in the price of iron ore in the international market, with the expectation of increased Chinese demand, also contributed to the rise in the share prices of steelmakers throughout the session.
“Ibovespa has been able to defend itself more from the foreign market through a higher price goods“, says Gustavo Cruz, strategist at RB Investimentos. For him, the impact of slightly lower inflation for this year and in the following years may also have affected business.

The last “full” week of the year for markets before the year-end festivities includes the US Central Bank’s Open Market Committee (FOMC, its English acronym) meeting, which should set the tone for withdrawing stimulus for the US economy. Although no rate hike is expected, the Fed’s statement should provide details on the trajectory of inflation in the US and how monetary policy will be implemented.
In Europe, liquidity is expected to be maintained, by both the European Central Bank and the Bank of England, as the micron variable progresses to the coronavirus. In the UK, it was registered The first death from the Corona virus, Covid-19, of a patient infected with the new strain.
The World Health Organization (WHO) states that Ômicron provides evidence that it escapes vaccine protection. However, there is still little clinical data on the new strain.
“Exchange complications are still very attractive and we shouldn’t suffer too much from this alternative, due to vaccination,” says Danny Schweizer, Head of Variable Income at Ébano Investimentos.
And here he highlights that promises to move the markets tomorrow are the minutes of the last meeting of the Monetary Policy Committee (Copom) of the central bank, in which the college decided to raise the base interest rate (Selic) by 1.5 percentage points to 9.25% annually.
