Latest Updates

The Brazilian gross domestic product stalled in the fourth quarter of 2023, extending the revised third-quarter print that also reflected a stall, and missing market expectations of a 0.1% increase. It reflected the first back-to-back quarters without growth since the pandemic-driven economic crisis in the first half of 2020, strengthening the argument for doves in the Central Bank of Brazil and aligning with the central bank’s guidance of repeated rate cuts. Among different industries, the key agricultural sector plummeted by 5.3% from the third quarter, enough to fully offset the expansions for industry (1.3%) and services (0.3%). The GDP expanded by 2.1% compared to the corresponding quarter of the previous year, notching a 2.9% expansion during the whole of 2023.
