How does the Canadian dollar trade against the Brazilian real historically?

The Canadian dollar is one of the top ten most traded currencies in the world, and the real is among the most actively traded of emerging market currencies.

When the Brazilian real was introduced in July 2004, it roughly maintained parity with the Canadian dollar. Since the Brazilian real has undergone a devaluation of more than 20% due to economic crises and insufficient currency inflows in recent years, it still maintains a closer parity than the US dollar, considering the Canadian dollar has also seen a big drop in value.

What affects CAD / BRL exchange rates?

Exports from Japan and China

Both countries buy dollars to stabilize their currencies. This helps them create cheaper exports, which in turn makes their exports more attractive to world buyers.

US interest rates

Brazilian currency is sensitive to changes in US interest rates that affect foreign investments in emerging markets. This in turn affects the Canadian dollar in relation to the Brazilian real.

Policy changes in Asian countries

Brazil extensively trades with Asian countries like China, which means that its currency is affected by commercial policy changes in those countries.
