Sao Paulo (Reuters) – The currency closed slightly higher against Wednesday, with the first session in September taking a break from investors’ assessment of a situation involving the same risk factors over the past few days – the financial situation / domestic policy and the possibility of easing stimulus in the US.
The dollar was up 0.20% at 5.1826. During travel, it varies between 5.1904 rais (+ 0.35%) and 5.1424 rais (-0.58%).
The currency came in from seven falls in eight sessions, during which time it retreated 4.62%.

The market estimates that the new wave of lower-than-expected indicators should strengthen the notion that the US will keep the $ 1 billion cash stimulus in progress until the end of this year.

A fall below that level could trigger automated sales orders, which could push the dollar’s futures to a low of 5.04 riyals in July.
“The dollar failed in its attempt to surpass the May peak,” Karen Jones of the Technical Analysis Group at Commercebank said in a statement.
“Falling below the 5.0408 rice rate at the end of July will put the June low of 4.8932 at the table again,” he added.
