• Voter paralysis

    With so much tilting voters against change, democratic reason is the loser, says Solly Moeng.

  • The power of perseverance

    True grit is a reliable predictor of who will achieve success in life, says Ian Mann.

  • It's the system

    The system sucks and it’s being used far too often as an excuse, says Mandi Smallhorne.

Rand slips on euro strength

Feb 01 2013 12:46
I-Net Bridge
Johannesburg – The rand slipped at noon‚ reversing earlier gains‚ due to broad based euro strength.

At 11:55‚ the rand was bid at R8.9890/$ from its Thursday close of R8.9597 and Wednesday’s close of R9.0187. 

The local currency was bid at R12.2756/€ from its previous close of R12.1921 and at R14.2206 against sterling from R14.2148 before. The euro was bid at $1.3663 from Thursday’s close of $1.3610 and Wednesday’s close of $1.3568.

“The broad theme at the moment is euro strength across major crosses rather than dollar/rand strength‚” said Jim Bryson‚ currency trader at RMB.

"Stop loss/barrier runs have been the name of game‚ with moves in €/$ (through 1.36) prompting similar squeezes in €/¥ (through 125) and $/¥ (through 92)‚" said analysts at RBC Capital Markets in a research note‚ Dow Jones News Wires reported.
