- USD/ZAR opens lower this morning, pulling away from 14.40 as early USD buying fades somewhat.
- ZAR depreciated 4.53% vs the USD last week as rising US Treasury yields and a deteriorating domestic covid situation forced a more substantial correction in USD/ZAR.
- Focus this week will be on CPI data – expected to tick up to 5-5.2% y/y, and local political/factional risks within the ANC as suspended SG Magashule faces off with the party in court.
- On the CPI front, while this print is moving above the midpoint of the SARB's 3-6% range, this should not change the SARB's accommodative stance as price pressures are expected to moderate into year-end with the bank focused on the medium-term factors over near-term transitory ones.
