The dollar opened the negotiations on Monday, 25, with a sharp drop of almost 1.5%, quoted at R $ 5.49, amid optimism in the global financial scenario. With public holidays in the United States and the United Kingdom, European stock exchanges rise, but liquidity is lower and should be so in local markets, which operate despite the anticipation in the State of São Paulo of the July 9th holiday.
This is the first time that the foreign currency has been quoted below R $ 5.50 since May 5.
The American currency has appreciated, even with the significant drop of this second, exceeding 35% this year. At the beginning of the year, in the first session, held in January, the exchange rate was around R $ 4. In exchange offices, according to a survey carried out by the Estadão / Broadcast, the tourism dollar is quoted close to R $ 5.80.
The Brazilian stock exchange and the dollar in sight should also have corrections, since they were practically closed on Friday when the video of the ministerial meeting cited by ex-minister Sérgio Moro began as evidence of President Jair Bolsonaro’s attempt to interfere in the Federal police.
Even in the midst of growing tensions between the United States and China, a situation that is centered on Hong Kong and which remains on the investors’ radar, international markets turn their attention to the economic reopening of some countries around the world, operating high in the morning this Monday, the 25th.
Countries like Germany, which has returned with football matches, held without an audience and Italy, with people already attending shopping centers, are examples of places where social distance, used to contain the pandemic of the new coronavirus, which causes Covid-19, has been loosened.
