Sao Paulo, Jan 26 (.).- The Sao Paulo Stock Exchange returned to the red numbers this Thursday and with a minimum decrease of 0.08% of the index (114,178 points), which keep it in a stable scenario, interrupted two consecutive sessions up.
The Brazilian stock market managed to remain stable, despite the small negative turnaround pushed by the loss of value of the preferred (-2.56%) and ordinary (-2.79%) papers of the state oil company Petrobras (NYSE:) .
The ordinary titles of the mining company Vale (+1.87%), one of the world’s largest producers and exporters of iron, were again the most traded, followed by the preferential ones of Petrobras.
The largest Latin American stock market by traded volume totaled operations for 22,307 million reais (about 4,396 million dollars) and recorded almost 3.3 million transactions.
In the foreign exchange market, the dollar continued to lose ground and this Thursday depreciated a slight 0.08% – the same variation of the stock market – against the real and ended the day listed at 5,073 reais for purchase and 5,074 for sale in the Brazilian commercial exchange rate.
