After hitting the R $ 5.375 mark on Wednesday, the highest price since May, the trading dollar returns to a high on Thursday (19), reaching the value of R $ 5.416 at 11:10 a.m., after hitting 5 455 R $ in the early morning. The accelerated appreciation in recent days can be explained by political and fiscal uncertainties in Brazil, which end up impacting the financial market. High levels of inflation and pessimism about the economic recovery are also influencing the rise of the US dollar. The federal government’s initiative to launch projects that could further increase public debt on the eve of next year’s presidential elections worries financial analysts.
