  • 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

  • While the Cape roasts, Trump has upset Paris! - Three to buy, one to sell
  • Last week local news was dominated by developments around the #Guptaleaks. New revelations seem to jeopardise President Zuma and that served to strengthen the Rand.
