“Platinum counters were down on a lower platinum price with global supply concerns easing away‚ after unresolved mining issues earlier in the week now seen starting to be resolved‚” said Francois Venter‚ equity dealer at Investec Asset Management in Cape Town.

“The industrial index was led higher by continued demand seen from foreigners for retail stocks‚” he added.

“Reserve Bank Governor Gill Marcus made it clear that consumer spending was in good shape and she did not feel it necessary to cut rates‚” he said.
