“The week was very good for the Ibovespa, despite having achieved a little yesterday after a series of seven daily gains. The volume also remained high in the last two days, well above average, and this is due to two reasons: first, the end of the cycle of high interest rates in our BC, which brought a rally of optimism not only to the stock exchange but also for long interest rates, which closed a lot in the last few days; and second, by the inflation rates in the United States, with deflation, in yesterday’s reading, in the PPI producer price index”, says Paulo Gala, chief economist at Banco Master.
“Today’s extremely positive behavior reflects a few things. First, there was no negative news, nothing in the political field that was of great concern, which left the door open for another day of gains, like the ones we have seen recently. But the main factor of the day was the corporate balance sheets, with a big series between yesterday and today. For the most part, the results pleased investors, which helps to understand today’s very general rise among sectors”, says Helena Veronese, chief economist at B.Side Investimentos.
Thus, the dissemination of gains was noticeable in sectorial indices, such as consumption, up 2.68% in the session, and basic materials, which rose 1.87%.
