Dollar hits R $ 5.70 with tension by Selic

The exchange rate rally gained a new mark on Wednesday. With the market pressured by the interest rate cut, the dollar climbed and registered a new nominal record against the real. In the session, the tourism dollar advanced 0.3%, ending the day quoted at R$ 5.93 ($ 1). In addition to lower interest rates, which make investments in Brazil less attractive and lead to currency flight, the market also increased tension with the worsening of the country’s risk assessment.
