In the year of the bicentenary of independence, we reaffirm our unwavering commitment to the sovereignty of the Brazilian people, expressed by vote and exercised in accordance with the Constitution.

As the centenary approached, the modernists, together with Semana de 22, launched a cultural movement that, by pointing the way to art with Brazilian characteristics, helped shape a truly national identity.

Today, we are again called upon to identify paths that will strengthen our path to the will of our people, which is the highest independence a nation can achieve. Democratic stability, respect for the rule of law and development are important conditions for Brazil to overcome its core problems. This is the biggest value on September 7 this year.

Our democracy has repeatedly proved its reliability. In less than four decades, it has faced deep crises, both economic, with periods of recession and hyperinflation, and political, overcoming these ills with the strength of our institutions.

They were strong enough to guarantee the execution of governments from different political spectrums. Not succumbing to the litany of those who go beyond the reasonable limits of constructive criticism, it is our institutions that continue to guarantee the civilizational development of Brazilian society.

It is important that the authorities of the Republic – executive, legislative and judicial – independently and in concert promote the necessary changes for the development of Brazil.

The civil society organizations and citizens who signed this act underline the role of the Brazilian judiciary, in particular the Supreme Federal Court, the main guardian of the Constitution, and the Supreme Electoral Court, which conducted our esteemed elections with complete safety, efficiency and fairness. … at the international level and to all magistrates, recognizing his invaluable role throughout our history as a force to pacify differences and an authority for the protection of fundamental rights.

To all those who perform noble legal functions in the country, we express our respect at this time when fate requires balance, tolerance, courtesy and a vision of the future.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario



The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
