Brazil's unemployment rate falls to 5.4% in September - a record-low for that month, though missing expectations for 5.3%. A year ago, the rate stood at 6%. The Bovespa leads global markets on the upside today, +1.2%, though still down over the past year even as the central bank has slashed rates more than 500 basis points.
