Rand

  • Thanks to the weak rand these commodity shares are set to rocket
  • The rand started out 2017 at 13.78, and quickly strengthened to R12.42 in mid-March. This would've negated strengthening commodity prices world-wide. The price of copper, ferrochrome, gold and aluminium all rose during 2017. But - fortunately for South African producers of these commodities the rand weakened yet again, now trading in the R14 range. And that means all of these commo... ››› more

History shows that this is not the time to panic, however the risk of further downgrades has certainly increased and now look unavoidable. We have consistently suggested that you regularly review your offshore i... ››› more

  • The Year that was - The biggest winner of 2016 was the Rand!
  • 2016 has been a year many will quickly forget, but for the shock results of the Brexit vote and the US elections; it was a year where many cans were kicked down the road. Global growth remained benign and potential silver-linings have yet to gain material traction because of lingering uncertainties such as the future US foreign policy, the tensions in South East Asia, lingering debt problems i... ››› more

  • Cabinet reshuffle announced - Two to buy and one to sell
  • Admittedly, I expected more movement in the Rand once the cabinet reshuffle was announced. We have a saying that “the Market always knows” which seems to apply in this case. When Mr. Nene was removed, the Rand fell 8,5% within the first few days and then extended those losses by another 10% a few weeks later. By comparison the Rand has loss only 7% so far, perhaps the Market knew that SA I... ››› more

  • A week of heightened protests has ended and the ANC Cadre are holding the fort, for now. Their confidence masks the growing dissension from all sides, including members of its own party, eventually pressure will come to bear. Fitch followed S&P in downgrading SA, but again the reaction was relatively muted. Clearly the market had been preparing for this eventuality. Of more concern is that som... ››› more

  • If there ever was a time for capital protection, this is it!
  • As it stands, we are at the tail end of an eight-year bull market and, by most estimates, markets in the developed world are massively overpriced versus historical levels. When we have seen such conditions in the past, global markets almost always fell dramatically within a year or two. Adding to this risk is the fact that the US Fed, the European Central Bank and a number of other central ... ››› more

  • Potential reversal playing out on Pioneer Foods

  • I was wrong
  • I was wrong about the rand. I thought it was going to go up to R10 a dollar, but I'm not going to cry about it. You can see looking at the USD/ZAR (United States Dollar versus the South African Dollar) weekly chart, a large wedge pattern formed from January 2016 up ‘till August 2017. A wedge pattern is known as a reversal pattern where the price wedges down into a triangle formation. And a... ››› more

  • The major news is today's GDP growth figure for the 2nd quarter. The print should come out at 2.6% and signal a short-lived recession. The Rand's strength was given a boost after poor jobs numbers out from the US on Friday, but has started consolidating around R12.95. We believe clients should use the current strength to allocate an appropriate portion of assets to offshore markets. - Contact ... ››› more
