RIO DE JANEIRO, June 26
RIO DE JANEIRO, June 26 (Reuters) - The Brazilian real firmed about 1 percent in its fourth consecutive session of gains on Wednesday after data showing weaker-than-expected first-quarter U.S. economic growth eased concerns about an imminent withdrawal of U.S. stimulus measures.
The real rose to as much as 2.1905 per U.S. dollar, its strongest level in a week.
