The bigger vary will be seen from June the place the 38.2% and 23.6% Fibonacci holds as respective assist and resistance zones. Value could also be heading towards assist because the Transferring Common (MA) nears a potential bearish crossover (100-day crosses beneath 200-day in blue) as talked about in my earlier article final week.

Basic components affecting the pair could present the catalyst to kind this bearish crossover and push costs towards the 16.5000 assist stage and doubtlessly the 16.3444 38.2% Fibonacci zone. The FOMC determination out of the US could have a systemic impact on the SARB if their charge determination diverges from present expectations. If consensus outcomes are seen whereby the SARB holds charges on maintain, this will likely result in this short-term bullish continuation.

A charge reduce by the SARB will seemingly trigger a depreciation within the Rand and will see ZAR bears goal the 17.0000 resistance stage. Quite a bit can change from now till Thursday, notably within the world financial atmosphere so maintaining an in depth watch on any influencing components may give extra accuracy to consequence chances.
