RIO DE JANEIRO Dec 6 Brazil's real opened more
than half a percentage point stronger on Thursday as investors
expected the government to keep unwinding measures it imposed
early in the year to curb dollar inflows.
Such expectations grew further after daily Valor Economico
reported, without naming its sources, that government officials
think the real has weakened too much in the past few days. The
report said that could stoke inflation without bringing clear
benefits to economic activity.
The real last traded at 2.0826 per dollar, 0.6
percent stronger than at Wednesday's close.
