Brazil central bank chief hints at another 50 bps rate cut

BRASILIA, Nov 20 (Reuters) - Brazil's central bank could cut interest rates by another half percentage point, the bank's president Roberto Campos Neto said on Wednesday, adding that any further moves will be carried out in a cautious manner.

Speaking to a Congressional Budget Committee, Campos Neto said the fight against inflation must be maintained because low inflation delivers sustainable growth over the long term, and also said a decline in global trade and polarized politics around the world have affected Brazilian growth and investment.
