Real

Used in the context of general equities. (1) natural, (2) not dividend roll-or program trading-related; (3) not tax-related. "Real" indications have three major repercussions: a) pricing will be more favorable to the other side of the trade since an investment bank is not committing any capital; b) price pressure will be stronger if real since a natural buyer/seller may have information leading to his decision or more behind it, and c) an uptick may be required for the trader to transact if the indication is not real and the trader has no long position.

El informe de Pineda debio de surtir el efecto buscado porque desde entonces encontramos a Pedro de Ribera, "Theniente de Maestro mayor de las Obras Reales y las de Madrid," presente en todos los ajustes para los corrales y, mas adelante, se le llama tambien para participar en el ajuste de las tramoyas y mutaciones en el Coliseo del Buen Retiro para la representacion en 1723 de La hazana mayor de Alcides, de Jose de Canizares con musica de Giacomo Facco (Lopez Alemany 208).
Y verdaderamente hubo de ser un gran alivio para las arcas de Madrid pues, por ejemplo, aunque el presupuesto estimado por el pintor Joseph de Paz por su trabajo y materiales para la comedia era de 4200 reales, Ribera logro reducirlo a 2 040; el de los adornos, que originalmente era de 3740, quedo en 1730 (Lopez Alemany 216); la cuenta de Juan Vicente de Ribera por la pintura de unas mutaciones que hizo paso de 1 500 reales iniciales a 500; las que pintara Juan Delgado, de 1000 reales, quedaron en la mitad; las que pinto Manuel Santos Fernandez, por las que el pedia 1 100 reales acabaron en 480, etc.

If Navarro's opinion were true, today usury would be carried out by the person who gave a loan of 1,100 silver reales in Castile in order to get back only 1,000 in Portugal, or what is the same, the person who gave a loan of 100 ducats and 11 silver reales in exchange for only 110 reales to be received in Portugal.
It should be noted that after the value of the silver real increased to 400 reais, and 10 reales amount to one ducat of 400 reais, if changes are made from Portugal to Castile or from Castile to Portugal taking the ducat as unity (as was usually done before), one should note that the exchange from Portugal to Castile has lost almost the eleventh part of its old value in the same way that the ducat has diminished in an eleventh fraction.
