South African 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

  • 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

  • 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

  • For the first time in three years - I see upside for the rand!
  • Normally when I write about the rand, I expect the rand value to drop big time. • In 2013, I told you how the rand was going from R9.00 to R10.50 to the dollar. • In 2015, I showed you how the rand was going from 11.00 to R16.00 to the dollar • And now I'm about to reveal where I expect the rand to go from R16.00 Fortunately over the years, every time I made a rand prediction it worked ... ››› more

  • First the spear, then the spike ... The rand crashes then recovers!
  • Last week, President Zuma made an unexpected announcement. Finance minister Nhlanhla Nene was let off (dare I say fired). And the sad thing is that he has been widely known to do a great job during difficult times. And is probably one of the most qualified person for the job. But as soon as the announcement came out, the rand crashed. It moved from R14.50 to R15.29 to the US dollar in just one h... ››› more

  • Your money is disappearing in front of your eyes!
  • I don't have many regrets. But the one regret I do have, is not taking action four years ago and opening an offshore savings account to protect a portion of my capital. The rand is a joke and your money is disappearing in front of your eyes. Not just lately, but for the last four years! It's still not too late, though to take action and avoid a complete disaster. After you're done read... ››› more

  • The end of the South African rand is nigh!
  • What a bitter-sweet situation we're in. Jobs are being created in the United States of America and the economy is growing at a good pace. While back in South Africa we have the rand devaluing at record levels which is making it more and more expensive to travel and buy goods. You can understand why it's a win/lose situation. But it doesn't have to be. Let me take it a step further. ... ››› more

  • The Reserve Bank won't intervene as the rand continues its slide to R14/$
  • The rand has kicked off the week weaker than its close on Friday. The currency has been under immense pressure over the past few weeks. Over the weekend, the governor of the Reserve Bank said it won't step in to stem the currency's losses. The rand has weakened again this morning and is getting close to R14 to the greenback. Let's take a closer look… The rand weakens further Th... ››› more

  • The rand picks up but remains vulnerable to offshore developments
  • Last week saw the rand plummeting as worries over growth in China's economy hit global markets, but the local currency has managed to settle down this week. But risks still remain that could send the rand weaker again. Let's take a closer look at what's going on… The rand has pulled back some of last week’s losses Yesterday, the rand benefitted from some weakness in the dollar, ... ››› more

  • This chart could reveal South Africa's downfall…
  • Oi vey! That's what I hear from Aiden every day in the office, while he's reading the news. Who can blame him with the economy and political situation going awry. Sure we have less lights, water and food but there's something even bigger brewing. This chart sends a shiver down my spine, because if it plays out, it could be the end of South Africa as we know it. Let me explain… The ... ››› more

  • What's the fuss about the rand against the dollar?
  • When the rand is on one of its roller coaster rides, the most quoted currency you'll hear the rand compared to is the US dollar.

  • Don't get caught between the rand and a hard place!
  • Don't get caught between the rand and a hard place! Over the last month, we've seen the rand getting hammered. And it's becoming more and more obvious local and international investors are losing faith in our government's ability to generate the growth it's been promising for years. But government's problems could get a whole lot worse! And unless you take action to protect yourself, yo... ››› more

  • Why the rand's woes aren't over yet
  • The rand has really been smacked lately and has weakened by over 18% to the dollar this year. This greatly impacts our daily lives… The most significant being at the petrol pump. Because oil is priced in dollars it takes more rands to buy each barrel of oil. The movement of the rand in the last month has made a barrel of oil 12% more expensive! And it won’t be long until we see the pr... ››› more
