On the Brazilian Stock Exchange, the Ibovespa reference indicator rose 1.46% this Wednesday, to 110,235 points. It’s the best result since June 3rd.

In the Brazilian interest rate market, DI contracts (interbank deposits) with maturities starting in January 2024 retreated after a day of highs the day before.

Inflation and lower interest rates in the United States tend to lower the cost of Brazilian credit because, among other reasons, they reduce the pressure on the Brazilian Central Bank to increase the premium to attract investors to the country’s fixed income.
