Brazil central bank sets cutoff rate on dollar auction
RIO DE JANEIRO
RIO DE JANEIRO Dec 3 (Reuters) - Brazil's central bank on Monday set a cutoff rate of 2.12245 reais per U.S. dollar at a first dollar auction designed to boost liquidity in the foreign exchange market at the end of the year.
The bank is offering up to $5 billion in two separate auctions with different repurchase agreement dates: Jan. 4 and Feb. 4, 2013.
That cutoff rate is for the dollars that will be repurchased in January, the bank said in a statement. It has not yet given details about the outcome of the second auction.
