Watch live market highlights today, with expert analysis from PagBank Research, and prepare to invest better.
Follow daily, from Monday to Friday, at 9:30 am, and stay well informed about all the news and changes that impact the markets and answer your questions about investments. The program is presented by Marcio Lorega, Research and Economics manager, and Rodrigo Paz, senior graphics analyst, both at PagBank.
The highlights of the day are:
-Global stocks start this Monday (25) in decline as fears rise over the worsening coronavirus outbreak in China, raising concerns of a further economic downturn. The greater aversion to risk is still exacerbated by the expectation of a more intense monetary tightening by the Federal Reserve.
-Oil futures contracts are down about 4%, heading to close below $100 a barrel. The price of iron ore falls sharply and may affect companies in Brazil.
– Here, investors are following the speeches of the president of the Central Bank to draw a line for monetary policy, with the Copom meeting next week, on the 3rd and 4th of May. Another factor that has drawn attention is the political field, with the proximity of the elections and the fiscal risk, given the development of the government with the treatment of public servants who demand a salary increase. This week will still have important inflation indicators to be released.
