Brazil real weakens 2 pct despite central bank intervention

RIO DE JANEIRO, June 20 (Reuters) - Brazil's real slid 2 percent on Thursday even after the central bank acted to halt a currency rout that has been spurred by fears that the U.S. Federal Reserve is about to scale back its monetary stimulus program.

The real last traded at 2.27 per dollar, 2.2 percent weaker on the day, after closing nearly 2 percent lower on Wednesday.
