  • I would like to remind everyone that China just LOWERED their interest rates and that they had and economic growth of 8%+ in 2021. While most countries are stagnant or facing recession, forced to raise the interest rates to curb inflation, they're lowering it to stimulate the market. Contrary to what the regular normie will tell you, China loves a strong USD. They will use their profit to buy Uncle Sam even more (using a lot of USD), since Let's go Brandon is there to do just that: finish selling the USA off to the Chinese. The reason for which China loves a strong USD is because they own such a huge part of the country, obviously, and not because of their deep blue eyes... we all should just remember that out profits are made of other people's losses. Never lose! Manage your risk. There will be huge volatility for sure.

    • In my opinion the USD/BRL could go ~5,20 if it breaks to ~4,80 if it breaks down to 4.20 an then 3.80 - GT to all of you

    • steira steira good luck with those targets. Just a curiosity: why would you be so bullish on a corrupt country that has nothing to it but being a colony where gringos steal resources from? That's basically what Brazil is. There's nothing here but water, meat, corn, soy beans, metals, etc. Industry and technology are where the big bucks are. I would believe Brazil if it did what South Korea did: invest heavily in basic education for one entire generation, and then proceed to invest into professionals and structure for a thriving technological industry. As it is, nothing but bananas in our future.

  • Basic economy for markets: the USA has made it clear that they'll hike interest rates up to 4 times this year. Higher interest rates are fundamentally and historically bad for stocks, because it makes risk investments less profitable than traditional fixed incomes based investments. We all know tech and the general market in the US crashed while commodities and IBOVESPA are killing it. However, people and institutions (even countries. Brazil has a lot of reserves on T10) will shift from risk all over the world to USD as soon as they start to believe those hikes will be real. China just might buy themselves another trillion, just for fun. The payout on their Treasury is already high before the hikes. You can't hedge against inflation using their treasury without converting currencies to USD. Longers can just chill and make new positions, being sure that we'll face volatility, but end up with a stronger USD than before.
    4
    • Perfect! Brazilians have now a great opportunity to buy some USD, the smart ones will make some pretty good profits when the hikes begin.

    • Eduardo ScuttiI totally agree and I doubled mu long position just betore the close today. If I am wrong tough luck but I doubt Im wrong .. ridiculous rate of exchange against practically all currencies !!!!!

  • Several investment management firms recommended people to get out of dollar and get silver, gold and commodity based stocks priced in "exotic" (haha) currencies. Their reasoning was that USD has peaked and that economic recuperation in the rest of the world will break USD. I'm not onboard for that reasoning, but a good piece of information to put on the scale and evaluate the situation. Play away, swingers, it's a good opportunity. BRL longers will get rekt, though.

    • Nero Mastinero Hi Nero! Sure, friend: names like K2 recommended trading dollars for emerging Asian bonds and European stocks. Brandywine went commodities. Bleakley went gold and silver. I will repeat I call that bostadetouro! Hedge Funds and the majority of people and firms trading remain bullish on the long run of USD. In fact, one of the things they repeat the most is that "people have been long at it for too long".

  • Someone big is messing with the market. Im sure because of the pattern.. I have seen this many times .. sooner than later the pattern will reverse. Currencies paying high interest rates sooner than later defacto devalue… in any case notice that BR has not moved much against european currencies !!! Only USD.. and renember USD will start moving up very soon😉

    • Nero Mastinero "Gossip and drama"? Lula's first term was an easy ride due to the previous government. He kept in line with those policies. You are ignoring everything that happened from 1994 until he got elected,.and the efforts that came before in order to curb inflation and currency depreciation. You're calling "gossip and drama" the fact that he's condemned and has been unlawfully released by the Supreme Court. The pandemic was good for Bolsonaro? I'm just laughing out loud, so I don't have to cry. You're like the big shot representative from that group of lawyers, the "Prerrogativas"... he said "the crime has been committed, what's the use of punishing it?" about all the crimes of Lula. The man can't even go to the streets without getting called out for what he is: the single most corrupt individual who ever stepped on the presidency, and the most responsible for the economic decline we live in. It's all directly connected to his policies and cartels.  .

    • Patrick de Oliveiraif it seems i didnt acredit the Cardoso administration for setting the Brazilian economy in a healthy direction then allow me this moment to do so now. Lula inherited an economy in solid standings n with great growth potential. That is very factual and undeniable. During his years as president he also maintained and grew the economy. The fall of the economy happened during Dilma, Temer and now with Bolsonaro. I didnt say the pandemic made it easier for Bolsonaro. I said the pandemic leveled the global economy in turn this already declining economy didnt hit the lows it couldve if the rest of the world kept on its trajectory sans the pandemix. Entendeu? Im sure the current powers that be would continue cooking the exchange rate as they currently are but we potentially wouldve crossed 6 a while ago. Now, Bolsonaro and his crew can always turn to blame the pandemic for ther economic short comings and not delivering on his campaign policies/promises.

    • Patrick de OliveiraOne more thing, we can discuss differences in opinion and research/experience without denigrating the value of the other side’s point of virw. I try my best to leave my emotions out of discussions of policy and economics because i believe it clouds my intake and sharing of information. I am planning to set aside time to deepen my research concerning Lula’s corruption. Ive heard both sides and hear a lot of emotion but very little explanation of the conspiracy and allegations. Due to this, i am seeking neutral sources who do not mix emotion with facts. Once, i do, if necessary and if i chose, i will respond with an educated summary that is as unaffected and objective as possible. In the meantime, i will crawl back into my cave and continue watching the market, trading successfully (grateful for my timing : luck and research) and observing with a clear and unbiased eye.

Are you still onboard for a more bullish run until February? I think you also mentioned 5,80 by February around November. I believe that in a few months 5,72 will be the new 5,55: touchy-bouncy! Always good to remember (not you, but the folks who read us) that it was once 5, then 5,15, then 5,32, then 5,49...

    • steira steira We could be the richest nation on the planet, hands down. What you saw in the early 2000s had to do with a reform that took place in 1994. With had two consecutive governments that actually worked decently, because if they didn't, the country could break down. Up until Lula's first mandate, things were looking good. It's not like corruption got deleted, but they got more responsible with the public money. For a while. From Lula's second term through Dilma, they managed to create the biggest corruption scheme this country had ever seen, and I'll tell ya: we had some pretty big ones before this. What we love today is directly connected to it.

      • Francisco Garcia Incidentally: Erdogan started plummeting the interest rates in order to try and save the Turkish Lira. A little too late or still reversible? Any thoughts? Personally, I don't think they would have anything for themselves, other than a currency reform. Also: Chile just started dying yesterday. Another Argentina and Venezuela on the way.

First target would net the bet. I think we'll stay in the same through Christmas and New Year's Eve. We'll start moving in January  towards 6,00 - 6,10 by February.

      • prashant patel  also, Powell said up to three hikes, whenever they find it necessary. That reeks of much before June, like they said it previously. I'm betting on April, at most. The prez is getting a lot of pressure.

Seriously goosebumped. I know you don't agree, but I'm living in the future, in a place.where Europe and the USA hiked hard and the rest of the world did too, yet the price of things everywhere keeps going up.

      • Rocco Corvino I would say the most important aspect of this forum is that people are allowed to red finger us, and to call us nosy, spammers or wherever. Anybody is. As we are allowed to call people intellectually deprived or downright dishonest for not seeing the obvious. We're not "cheering", we are telling our minds from the perspective that we consider precise. We post a lot because it's a public forum. I don't use social media, I absolutely despise it. So there, go ahead: give us ******* We are all adults, and "mean words" from strangers online shouldn't hurt anybody with the least bit of skin. Bet on Brazil and get burned. I'll say it like a mantra. Get burned, and know it was deserved. No disrespect. Just logic.

I repeat...this is not my case, my salary is in Euro and i live in Europe, ...now, if you want to understand...good, if not, no problem, i can immagine that not everyone has the same sensitivity and intelligence.

        3
      • man i would say yes because Brazil is increasing the selic rate again(risk free rate), and this attracts foreiger investors(imagining yourself puting your money in a risk free asset paying almost 10%). No doubt this would push real up, but next year is presidential elections and this push real down. So i dont know what expected from that

      • Pedro Marquesrisk free asset?? Thats definitely a joke!! History shows us that high interest. currencies devalue quickly.. young traders buy those currencies and carry them making pips everyday.. but keep them long enough and they will lose cents!! Besides in Brazil a risk free situation is unheard of !! Forget it…

    • It appears much will depend on whom is in the 2022 race for election's. Worse case scenario bozo bolsonario or the lula ladrão. If we have a third candidate looking strong lava jato Moro things could change. Maybe the end of the real bear run. Thoughts?
      1
      • My honest opinion is that Brazil will NEVER change.. remember laws are written so politicians can steal and get away with it .. do you really think that bearing in mind that, anything will change?? And guess what Moro doesnt have a chance!! He is hated in northeast, SP and Rio .. rest of the states are indiferent to him..

      • Bolsanaro is by far the best candidate for a strong Real, reality will return as Brazil has implemented Volker type monetary policy which led to a great Bull market. US, developed West, are just printing presses with no ability to pay off debts let alone interest at the current rate of growth deficit spending in US giving debt and rising rates. At 10% interest the US barely cover interest expense on debt let alone deficit spending.
        1
      • Moro is too silent. He's been called a partial judge and is venturing into politics merely to protect himself. He doesn't say a single word about how Lula was set free, bot a single word to defend his positions and his deeds. Everyone is being set free, and they actually changed the law to free Lula, which benefited a plethora of dangerous criminals, such as gun and drugs cartel leaders. There's nothing for Brazil. The least harmful is Bolsonaro, which is downright disheartening. Still, the only one who speaks against excessive state control and brings some sort of combat against the system in his discourses and actions. Moro will never win and Lula will go Kirschner/Maduro on us.
