In Brazil, future Ibovespa reflects Copom and retail minutes
On the domestic front, the Central Bank earlier released the minutes of the Monetary Policy Committee (Copom), which provides details on the members’ interpretations of the current economic scenario.
“In the monetary policy decision, point 18 called attention in which it says that ‘it is appropriate that the monetary tightening cycle continues to advance significantly in even more contractionary territory’”, pointed out Fabio Louzada, economist and CEO of Eu me banco. “This makes me believe that the Central Bank will follow a more hawkish and keep raising interest rates.”
The Central Bank also expressed concern about the world scenario – which includes the Federal Reserve raising interest rates, the lockdowns in China and the war in Ukraine – which they believe can keep inflation high for longer.
In addition to the minutes, the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE) reported that retail sales advanced 1% in March, compared to a consensus of 0.40%. The growth, despite showing a heated economy, can also be interpreted as a possible impetus to high prices.
