Ibovespa rose 2.15% driven by Petrobras

The Ibovespa rose 2.15% and closed the trading session on Thursday (19) at 68,331.80 points. The increase was mainly driven by Petrobras’ shares, which blast more than 11%, driven by the strong appreciation of the oil barrel, which exceeded 20%. Also, a series of news contributed to the greater optimism in the session, such as the discovery of a potential medicine against the coronavirus and the aid of $ 60 billion offered by the Federal Reserve (FED) to the Central Bank (BC).
