The Brazilian price index has increased in the latter half of the month of May indicating that inflation is being controlled.

Brazil's general price index, the IGP-M, has picked up 0.29% during the last ten days of May. The increase in the price index is compared to a fall of 0.52% in the previous month of April. The results exceed analyst expectations of an increase around 0.04% and have led to a shift in foreign exchange rates.

The figures relating to the increased price index indicate that Brazil is getting a grasp on the inflation and that there are signs of economic slowdown.

Currently the Brazilian real is trading at 0.37 against the euro and 0.31 against the pound.
