Ibovespa renews worst year-end result for fear of financial risk; The dollar reached 5.57 Brazilian reals

Sao Paulo – No Armistice, Cannes Ibovespa It suffered another day of losses and ended the session on Thursday (11) with the lowest close in more than a year. Today it did not bring news to encourage investors, on the contrary – it only increased concerns about financial risks, which have been affecting the market for some time.

Conversations on the PEC dos Precatórios suggest that the text approved in two chambers rounds, without many amendments, must undergo drastic changes in the Senate, where members of Congress are already considering removing the jurisdictional debts of the Teto dos Gastos government. Next week, the text to be discussed at the CCJ should be a jumble containing amendments proposed by senators and not quite in line with what was initially intended.

With the PEC, the government wants to fund the amendment in the part of Auxílio Brasil, a replacement for Bolsa Família, and to postpone the payment of court orders. However, in the alternative proposals that arrived at the decision of the matter, the idea was to pay the advance amount, to finance the Brazilian aid and not to dismantle the expenditure ceiling (since the repayment of judicial debts, exceptionally, will be calculated separately).

From a financial standpoint, there are positive elements to the proposal made by the three senators. The issue of paying the introductory fees off the ceiling would not be bad news for the markets, as the rule will remain and these expenses are dealt with exceptionally. From a political point of view, however, there are some hurdles involved, says the team of analysts at Levante Ideia de Investimentos.
