Exports from Japan and China

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

The policies of the Federal Reserve

When the Fed stops distributing dollars (as just one example), it restricts the money supply. Hence, demand goes up.

US interest rates

Brazilian real is sensitive to changes in US interest rates that affect how foreign investments in emerging markets.

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.
