NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Brazilian equities fell Tuesday, dragged lower by the real estate sector as home builder Gafisa said it will sell shares in a primary offering.

n Sao Paolo, the Bovespa stock index dropped 484 points, or 0.9%, to stand at 54,004 points in intraday trading.

The Bovespa benchmark rallied 2.4% on Monday, boosted by rising commodity prices and optimism over a global economic recovery. The index is up 45% this year.
