RIO DE JANEIRO Dec 18 (Reuters) - The Brazilian real was little changed early on Tuesday as the central bank conducted three 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 on Monday.

The real last traded at 2.0951 per dollar, practically unchanged from Monday's close.
