EMERGING MARKETS-Brazil real weakens on profit-taking after recent rally

(Updates prices)
    SAO PAULO, Oct 21 (Reuters) - The Brazilian real weakened on
Friday as traders booked profits from the currency's recent
gains.
    The real weakened 0.69 percent to close at 3.1606 per
dollar, after touching the strongest since August on Thursday
after the central bank defied expectations of a sharp rate cut.
    Traders also cited inflows related to a bill granting
amnesty to Brazilians who pay fines on undeclared assets held
abroad. The government expects to collect up to 50 billion reais
 ($15.8 billion) from the program. 
    The country's stock exchange rose 0.42 percent to 64.108,
helped by shares of miner Vale, which climbed 4.02 percent, and
state oil giant Petrobras, which rose 1.18 percent.
    But gains were limited by a 4.23 percent slide in shares of
rental car chain Localiza Rent a Car SA, after the
company announced bigger-than-expected third-quarter capital
spending that offset strong operational profit.
