“Gains in Brazilian assets spurred by the move to impeach President Dilma Rousseff are unlikely to last as Latin America’s biggest economy struggles, Brazil’s Verde Asset Management said in a letter to clients,” reports Filipe Pacheco for Bloomberg. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-12-10/brazil-impeachment-rally-likely-to-be-short-lived-verde-says
