Rand

  • Rand stages a comeback rally - take advantage of it!
  • The rand has been buoyed by tighter monetary policy in Turkey, Russia and Argentina. Our local inflation data assisted in the strength even though the Reserve banks held rates on Thursday. The Rand has gained over R1.30 against the Euro, USD and GBP in the past three weeks. Investors tend to panic and run for the exit all... ››› more

  • How to make money when the Rand is weak
  • The JSE remains in its consolidation phase but the current Rand weakness has created opportunities to buy some blue chips on the cheap. The Rand has followed emerging market currencies lower over the past week on the back of concerns in Turkey. The Turkish Lira has more than halved in value as they deal with their own “Nenegate”. The main reason for the Rand's significant weakness and ... ››› more

  • The JSE and these Rand Hedges are poised for a rally into year end
  • The JSE has remained buoyant after falling due to the ANC's EWC announcement last week. It's been range bound since breaking above its previous consolidation phase. A rally into year-end is still on the cards thanks to several JSE heavy weights earning significant offshore revenue. Stronger global growth and a rand that is facing headwinds into next year's elections should see earnings inc... ››› more

  • Coming soon…The end of the South African Rand!
  • It's with great sadness I announce the demise of the rand! In the last few weeks, we've seen the rand drop 19.13% from R11.50 to R13.70. Thanks to dismal bond yields; declining GDP, increased borrowing costs and less money printing! Of course, you are probably thinking… So what? Same old and why the drama? Well, it's what I saw in my charts this morning that made me lose all hope... ››› more

  • Rand Hedges in focus as the Rand's run seems to have ended
  • The Rand is on the back foot as US treasury yields jumped towards 3%, an important psychological level for investors. The weaker Rand helped the resources and rand hedge industrials rise yesterday as banks and retailers pulled back. After a surprisingly strong run, the Rand appears to be heading back to resistance at R12. 48 as anxiety and volatility return to more normal levels.   ... ››› more

  • How to trade the rand rally in 2018...
  • When Cyril Ramaphosa managed to defeat Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and the Jacob Zuma faction for the position of ANC president, the rand went crazy. It moved stronger by more than 10% versus the US dollar and was the world's best performing currency over the last month. I do not argue the relief felt after the Ramaphosa win is unwarranted.   I will however say that this one change wi... ››› more

  • South Africa gets downgraded and the Rand strengthens - what's going on?
  • On Friday 24 November S&P downgraded South Africa's long term local government bonds to junk rating. The problem according to S&P is that government in recent years have focused merely on the distribution of income, instead of trying to grow our income… “As a consequence, South Africa’s economy has stagnated and external competitiveness has eroded. We expect that offsetting fiscal m... ››› more

  • 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

  • Running for the Exit ‘en Mass' - One to Buy with one to Sell
  • The mid-term budget spooked many investors as it was thin on detail, but exposed an unexpected gap between income and expenses. These events typically create spikes in the currency. 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

  • Moving swiftly along - Three to buy
  • 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
  • Pioneer has been under tremendous pressure since releasing its results on 22 May 2017.
