    South African rand's Ramaphosa rally pauses ahead of key speech

    South Africa's rand surrendered some gains on Friday but remained near its three-year best ahead of Cyril Ramaphosa's maiden state of the nation address after he was sworn in as the country's president. Other South African assets continued to rally, with bond yields on the benchmark at their lowest since December 2015, while five-year credit default swaps (CDS) fell 3 basis points (bps) from Thursday's close. On Wednesday Jacob Zuma resigned as president after of weeks of pressure, ending a nine-year tenure punctuated by scandals, stagnant economic growth and policy uncertainty.

    South African rand slips on reports ANC decides to remove Zuma from office

    South Africa's rand slipped against the dollar in early Asian trade on Tuesday on reports the African National Congress party executive committee had decided to "recall" or remove President Jacob Zuma as head of state. The rand surrendered early gains made following reports the ANC had given the embattled leader 48 hours to resign, with the latest development raising the prospect of a showdown between Zuma's allies and those who want Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa to take over. Since Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa was elected party leader in December, Zuma has faced mounting calls from his party to end his scandal-plagued second term due to run out mid-2019.

    South African rand edges firmer as Zuma exit looms, stocks lower

    South Africa's rand edged firmer on Thursday but remained above the crucial 12.00 mark against the dollar as the continuing stalemate over President Jacob Zuma's future capped demand. Stocks fell on Thursday led by mining firm Gold Fields after the firm flagged lower earnings. The unit this week has struggled to push beyond last week's rally to 11.8500, a touch off its 2-1/2 year best, with optimism over the speedy removal of Zuma from office waning, leaving the currency open to profit-taking.

    South African rand slumps to 2-week low after ANC says no discussions on early Zuma exit

    South Africa's rand weakened as much as 1.7 percent on Wednesday to its worst performance in nearly three weeks after the ruling African National Congress said an early exit for President Jacob Zuma had not been discussed at a party meeting. Initially hit by softening demand for emerging market assets as global bond yields picked up, the rand's losses accelerated to a session-low 12.55 shortly after the ANC Secretary-General Ace Magashule told reporters Zuma's removal was not on the agenda of a meeting of the party's top decision-making body.

    South African rand rises after Zuma court ruling; Steinhoff slides

    South Africa's rand strengthened on Friday after a court ruled that President Jacob Zuma's appointment of a state prosecutor to decide whether to reinstate corruption charges against him was not valid, while shares in Steinhoff plunged further. At 1546 GMT, the rand was up 0.66 percent to 13.6400 against the dollar and was on course for gains of around 0.75 percent against the dollar this week. The rand has tended to rally on events which weaken Zuma's position as president.

    EUR Gains on Hopes of German Coalition, S&P Downgrades South African Rand

    The political instability in Germany improved over the weekend, as the leader of Bavaria’s conservative party endorsed an alliance with Germany’s Social Democratic Party (SPD). With voter pressure and the need to avoid new elections, the SPD has agreed to talk with Chancellor Angela Merkel, which raises the prospect of a new “Grand Coalition” German Government. Many European leaders have underlined the importance of getting a stable German government in place quickly so that the Eurozone can discuss its future, including Brexit and proposals by French President Emmanuel Macron on Eurozone reforms.
