EMERGING MARKETS-Brazil stocks rise as oil rally boosts Petrobras

By Bruno Federowski
    SAO PAULO, Nov 30 Brazilian stocks rose on
Wednesday as a rally in crude prices lifted shares of
state-controlled oil company Petrobras to their biggest daily
gain in five months.
    Shares of Petróleo Brasileiro SA, as the company
is formally known, jumped 8.1 percent, by far the biggest gainer
in Brazil's benchmark Bovespa stock index.
    The move came as oil futures jumped more than 8 percent.
Some of the world's largest oil producers agreed to curb oil
output for the first time since 2008. Oil heavy
Colombia's peso strengthened 2 percent, its biggest daily
gain in three weeks.
    Appetite for Brazilian assets also increased after the
country's Senate approved a strict cap on federal spending in a
first-round vote despite violent protests against the amendment.
 
    The country's real currency, however, was nearly flat
as traders help off from risky bets ahead of a central bank rate
decision. 
    The bank is expected to maintain a moderate pace of rate
cuts despite a sharp economic contraction in the third quarter
after weeks of market turmoil driven by the election of Donald
Trump to the White House. 
    Prices of Brazilian rate futures implied traders expected a
25 basis-point cut in the Selic rate to 13.75 percent, though a
50 basis-point reduction was not completely ruled out.
