Brazil real little changed as central bank sells dollars
RIO DE JANEIRO
RIO DE JANEIRO Dec 17 (Reuters) - The Brazilian real was little changed early on Monday as the central bank conducted two auctions to sell as much as $1.5 billion on the spot market with repurchase agreement.
The auctions, which aim at providing liquidity to the foreign exchange market at year-end, were announced late on Friday, after the currency market had closed.
The real edged 0.1 percent lower at 2.0865 per dollar.
