After rising earlier in the session, the dollar slipped against the Brazilian real on the news. The greenback was down 0.3% at 3.23 real in recent trade. Meanwhile, Brazilian stocks trimmed an early decline. The iShares MSCI Brazil Capped ETF remained down 1.8% at $33.18. Shares of the ETF traded at $33.78 the day before.
