• Conflict over water, coal

    SA's leaders have upped their support of the water-intensive coal industry, says Keith Schneider.

  • Cost of doing business

    The world can't afford the $4.7trn a year in environmental costs of business, says Mandi Smallhorne.

Rand a fraction softer

Nov 22 2012 14:38
I-Net Bridge
Johannesburg – The rand remained under pressure at noon moving a little bit closer to the R9 to the greenback level due to US markets being closed for Thanksgiving.

“The rand is under pressure‚ but continues to stay this side of the R9 per dollar level‚ after touching it briefly last night. The interest rate announcement later today will have no real affect on the rand as no interest rate cut is expected‚” a currency trader said.

Markets have been quiet today as participants are focussed on the SA Reserve Bank interest rate announcement at 15:00 this afternoon.

At 11:58‚ the rand was bid at R8.9734/$ from Wednesday’s close of R8.9695. The local currency was bid at R11.5301 to the euro from its previous close of R11.5394 and at R14.3119 against sterling from R14.3186 before. The euro was bid at $1.2849‚ from Wednesday’s close of $1.2860.
