Over the last six months, Brazil’s stock market has performed as well, if not better, than any market in the world. The Bovespa is up almost 19% during that time. The iShares MSCI Brazil Capped ETF (NYSE: EWZ) is one ETF that represents the Brazilian market and it is up 22.5% while the S&P 500 is actually down 3.4%.
The EWZ has formed a trend channel over the last eight months and the recent pullback has put the fund in contact with the lower rail of the channel. The fund jumped sharply on March 28 and that caused the daily stochastic readings to make a bullish crossover after reaching oversold territory.
The Tickeron AI Trend Prediction tool generated a bullish signal on the EWZ on March 27 and that signal showed a confidence level of 70%. More impressively, past predictions on the EWZ have been successful 90% of the time. This signal calls for a gain of at least 4% over the next month.
Brazil has benefitted from the different trade wars the United States has had with Mexico, Canada, and China. Agriculture products and steel have been at the center of the trade disputes and with tariffs being threatened and placed on some goods, Brazil has been the beneficiary. Two of Brazil’s biggest exports are soybeans and iron ore.
