How does the US dollar trade against the Brazilian real historically?
The US dollar is the most traded currency in the world, and the real is among the most actively traded of emerging market currencies.
When the Brazilian real was introduced in July 1994, it roughly maintained parity with the US dollar. But it’s since undergone a devaluation of more than 20% due to economic crises and insufficient currency inflows.

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.
The policies of the Federal Reserve

US interest rates

Policy changes in Asian countries
