Stock Market in Brazil
Brazil - Stock MarketAvailable data suggests that the economy continued to flounder in the second quarter, after GDP contracted for the first time since the 2015–2016 recession in the first quarter. Industrial production plunged in June and exports fell over 10% in the same month, in part due to depressed demand from Argentina. That said, economic activity grew for the first time this year in May, suggesting that a technical recession may have been avoided. Moreover, jobs were added in Q2, although increased labor participation kept the unemployment rate elevated nonetheless. Early data for the third quarter continues to point to weak momentum: The manufacturing PMI fell into contractionary territory in July, while both consumer and business confidence slipped. On a more positive note, the pension reform was passed by the lower house of Congress in its first two votes in July; however, it still has a long way to go before being finalized.
