American Dollar (bid and offer) – daily rates

Concept:

Available since 28/11/1984, this data set shows administered rates until 13/3/1990 and free rates from then on (Resolution 1690/1990). Administered rates are those set by the Central Bank of Brazil; in March, 1992, this rate started being called Ptax rate (close). Between 13/3/1990 and 30/6/2011, this rate was calculated as the average rate, weighed by volume, of all interbank operations traded on that day. Starting on 1/7/2011 (Circular 3506/2010), the Ptax rate calculation corresponds to the arithmetic average of four daily quotes provided by Central Bank of Brazil’s foreign exchange dealers; the quotes must reflect market conditions at that time.
