    Rand Report: Rand loses momentum as inflation woes persist

    The South African rand’s recent strength has finally stalled. With minimal data coming out of South Africa last week, the ZAR has been mostly influenced by global market factors. This includes the decline in prices of precious metals, such as gold. Additionally, the “risk-off” tone of global investors has taken its toll on the ZAR. The emerging-market rand encountered some recent headwinds, amid heightened market volatility and continued US Dollar strength. It all came to a head when the US

    The Weekly Rand Report: Rand in the red as the Fed raises rates

    Amidst a host of interest rate hikes, South Africa’s emerging-market currency lay at the mercy of global monetary policy. And with South Africa still facing loadshedding and declining gold prices, the rand is facing additional headwinds.
