São Paulo – The future of Ibovespa from the working holiday is down in the first trading this Wednesday (third). Although the Brazilian stock market has taken off in recent weeks from abroad, today’s investors have good reasons to watch the United States. The meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee, and the Board of Directors of the US Central Bank ends, and this month’s meeting is supposed to determine the outcome of the stimulus program for the US economy.
In practice, this stimulus comes from buying $120 billion a month in government bonds and interest rates very close to zero. A shift in this program could change the investment dynamics, since with rising interest rates, investors tend to look for safer and more profitable options in the US, leaving emerging markets like Brazil.
Investors are also seeking feedback on inflation, at its highest level in 30 years, and indications of when the institution intends to raise interest rates.
Earlier, the minutes of the last meeting of the Monetary Policy Committee (Copom) were released, which raised the base rate (Selic) by 1.5 percentage points at the last meeting. The document shows that the committee evaluated scenarios with greater adjustment rates, but came to the conclusion that with the approved pace, but taking into account a different final price, it is possible to reach the inflation target in 2022.
Financial risks remain on the radar and this day could prove crucial to the government’s goal of making adjustments to the public spending cap. Parliamentarians hope to be able to vote in the plenary session of the Chamber of Deputies in the PEC dos Precatórios, a proposal that limits the repayment of the union’s judicial debts and makes room in the budget to accommodate Auxílio Brasil, an alternative program to Bolsa Família. Since the government wants to adjust the entitlement, so that families receive at least R$400, the PEC will make it possible to pay for the re-adjusted value without creating unusual expenses.
