The central bank’s president, Alexandre Tombini, and his team left the rate unchanged in September amid a myriad of economic woes. They had expected the US Federal Reserve to raise its benchmark short-term rate from near zero in September, saying repeatedly the anticipated move had been “well communicated.”
