In November, economic activity in Brazil expanded 0.2% from the previous month in seasonally-adjusted terms, according to the Central Bank’s monthly indicator for economic activity (IBC-Br, Indice de Atividade Economica do Banco Central). The result contrasted October’s 0.2% fall and marked the best reading in five months. The result overshot market analysts’ expectations of a slight contraction.

The analysts surveyed for this month’s LatinFocus Consensus Forecast expect the economy to contract 0.6% in 2017, which is down 0.2 percentage points from last month’s estimate. For 2018, the panel of analysts sees GDP rising 2.2%.
