Elon Musk Fires People and Brazil Real Rises Ahead of the Elections

Markets never sleep! Let’s be prepared for a beautiful trading experience by looking at the most important news of Tuesday!

Events of the day:

17:00 GMT+3: ISM Manufacturing PMI

17:00 GMT+3: JOLTS Job Openings

How do Brazil’s elections affect the BRL?

After Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva won the elections in Brazil, the country slipped into protest from his opposers who voted for Jair Bolsonaro. They are blocking roads in states that supported the last president the most, stating that the voting process wasn’t fair. Still, Brazil Real has been rallying since the elections ended, rising against the USD by 3% in a single day.

Lula will probably use his victory to try to revive Brazil’s economy, which has suffered over the last four years. USDBRL approached the support line of 5.190, bouncing from it. We expect a breakout to happen, pushing the pair lower to 5.130 and 5.060.

  • Elon Musk dissolves Twitter’s board of directors. Nine people were on the board, and now Elon is the sole director.

  • Reserve Bank of India may launch its CBDS (central bank digital currency) called the digital rupee this month.
