Oct. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Brazil’s monthly inflation as measured by the IGP-M price index slowed to 0.53 percent in October, the Getulio Vargas Foundation said.
The increase was lower than the median 0.55 percent forecast in a Bloomberg survey of 33 analysts.
The IGP-M, the country’s broadest measure of inflation, rose 6.95 percent from the same period a year ago, the Rio de Janeiro-based Getulio Vargas Foundation said today in a report released on its website.
