Political events in South Africa are having an impact on the Rand. Whilst Brexit has been the main driver of GBP ZAR in recent months,
GBP/ZAR exchange rates are now 5% cheaper since last week. How will the FED's decision to hike rates impact the Rand?
The South African Rand is strong against the Pound despite the economy falling into recession. Those selling ZAR may want to make the most of current levels.
Recent Sterling weakness and the expectation the US won't rise interest rates in 2015 have helped the ZAR to make inroads into GBP, but will this last?
Sterling has taken a pounding of late with one bad data release after another, however the recent AAA down grade is simply a reflection of what has happened whereas the uncertainty in Europe may be a sign of exchange rates to come.
