Rand Slightly Weaker Ahead Of Ramaphosa Comments
Spot USD/ZAR has edged higher and last deals at ZAR18.0693, up ~380 pips on the day. A break above yesterday's high/76.4% retracement of the Oct 13 - Jan 12 downleg at ZAR18.1363/18.1024 would reaffirm the underlying bullish theme. Bears look for a dip through Feb 14 low of ZAR17.6431 and towards key support from Feb 2 low of ZAR16.9317.
- Local-currency bond yields are stabilising 5.9-6.0bp lower across the curve. South Africa's 10-year breakeven inflation rate has slipped to 6.10%.
