SAO PAULO – The Ibovespa closed with a high at the end of trading this Thursday (9). The Stock Exchange rose by more than 2.6% to 116,353 points after President Jair Bolsonaro wrote a letter calming feelings with the Federal Supreme Court (STF) after lunch with former President Michel Temer, who appointed Minister Alexandre from Moraes to the Court.
Minutes before the fact, the stock market was down 0.6% with the intensification of the dispute between the Three Powers after several stoppages of truck drivers were registered asking for the impeachment of Moraes.
According to Gustavo Cruz, strategist at RB Investimentos, investors were already afraid that no one would step back and be more conciliatory, and this would end the window of opportunity until the end of the year to vote on an important measure.
“The note goes on looking for a harmony, even if there was a bad moment. There have been other bad moments in the government, so that’s why the reaction is stronger now, with a declaration to the nation, preaching harmony, of course it helps to relax a little”, he says.
Gustavo Cruz recalls that Temer’s MDB was one of the parties that would discuss support for Bolsonaro’s impeachment, so this movement really shows that there is still room for conversation.
See below the graph of the movement of the Ibovespa after Bolsonaro’s meeting with Temer.
The Ibovespa closed up 1.72% at 115,360 points with a financial volume traded of R$38.123 billion.
Meanwhile, the commercial dollar fell 1.85% to R$5.226 on purchase and R$5.227 on sale. The dollar futures for October falls 1.63% to R$ 5.247 in the after-market.
In the interest rate futures market, the DI for January 2022 rose 34 basis points to 7.32%, the DI for January 2023 was up 31 basis points to 9.10%, DI for January 2025 advanced seven points -base at 10.11% and DI for January 2027 registered a negative variation of one base point at 10.50%.
The day before, the Stock Exchange had fallen 3.78% due to the institutional crisis that followed the protests on September 7th.
To make matters worse, after the closure yesterday, the atmosphere of tension after Jair Bolsonaro’s statements on Sept. 7 increased, amid concentration points of truckers on federal highways in 15 states, inflated by pocketnaristas. The president sent an audio asking the group to suspend the strikes because they could trigger inflation and harm the economy.
Despite the feeling that a bomb was disarmed on the political scene, the day still held some negative macroeconomic news.
The country’s official inflation, measured by the Extended National Consumer Price Index (IPCA), rose 0.87% in August compared to July, according to data from the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE).
There was a retreat from the high of 0.96% in July, but the number was above expectations. The expectation, according to the Refinitiv consensus, was 0.71% high compared to July 2021 and 9.50% compared to August 2020.
With this indicator, the market started to change the pricing of options for the next Copom, gaining space with bets on additional acceleration. After the last meeting, the indication was that there would be a rise of the same magnitude, of 100 basis points. Now, however, with fiscal risks and worsening inflation dynamics, an increase of 125 bps is already seen as the most likely scenario in the market.

Declaration to the Nation
At the moment when the country is divided between institutions, it is my duty, as President of the Republic, to go public and say:
1. I never had any intention of attacking any of the Powers. Harmony between them is not my will, but a constitutional determination that everyone, without exception, must respect.
2. I know that a good part of these divergences result from conflicts of understanding about the decisions adopted by Minister Alexandre de Moraes in the scope of the fake news inquiry.
3. But in public life, people who exercise power do not have the right to “stretch the rope”, to the point of harming Brazilians’ lives and their economy.
4. That is why I want to declare that my words, sometimes blunt, were the result of the heat of the moment and the conflicts that always aimed at the common good.
5. In spite of his qualities as a jurist and professor, there are natural differences in some decisions made by Minister Alexandre de Moraes.
6. Therefore, these issues must be resolved by judicial measures that will be taken in order to ensure the observance of the fundamental rights and guarantees provided for in Article 5 of the Federal Constitution.
7. I reiterate my respect for the institutions of the Republic, the driving forces that help to govern the country.
8. That’s what democracy is all about: Executive, Legislative and Judiciary working together on behalf of the people and all respecting the Constitution.
9. I have always been willing to maintain a permanent dialogue with the other Powers in order to maintain harmony and independence between them.
10. Finally, I want to register and thank the extraordinary support of the Brazilian people, with whom I align my principles and values, and lead the destiny of our Brazil.
