SAO PAULO Dec 26 (Reuters) - The Brazilian real gained 1 percent on Wednesday after the central bank intervened twice in the currency market, first conducting an auction to sell U.S. dollars with repurchase agreements and then calling a currency swap auction.

At 10:46 a.m. (1246 GMT), the real traded 1 percent stronger than Monday's close at 2.0575 per dollar.
