Brazil Economic Activity October 2019

Brazil: Economic activity eases in October

Economic activity rose 0.2% in seasonally-adjusted month-on-month terms in October, according to the Central Bank’s monthly indicator for economic activity. The result was below September’s upwardly revised 0.5% increase (previously reported: +0.4% month-on-month).

On an annual basis, economic activity was stable at September’s 2.1% in October, while annual average growth in economic activity was steady at 1.0%.

Looking ahead, economic output is expected to gain some impetus on the back of a looser monetary stance, which should in part fuel fixed investment. Moreover, a tighter labor market and government measures aimed at increasing disposable incomes should support household spending.
