Intervention Fears Set Brazilian Real Down

The Brazilian real, ranking among the best performers in currency markets this year with the Australian and New Zealand dollar, experienced another day of losses as the government may take further action to halt the current national currency rally.
The Brazilian real suffered another day of pessimism as speculations suggest that the national central bank could be ready to take further measures, after setting a tax for international capital inflows towards Brazilian equities markets last week, declining attractiveness for the real as fears that a good currency performance may be once synthetically halted by policy makers.
USD/BRL traded at 1.7205 as of 21:25 GMT from an opening rate of 1.7178 today.
