AT 1516 GMT the rand was 0.02 percent firmer at 14.4657 per dollar after tumbling to as far as 14.8975, its weakest in three months.

    South African rand leads currency losers after economic outlook downgrade

    South Africa's rand sold off on Wednesday after newly appointed Finance Minister Tito Mboweni unveiled a downgraded economic forecast for the country. The rand was the worst performing emerging market currency versus the dollar during the session, with the greenback climbing more than 2% against it. Mboweni announced that government debt is expected to keep rising until 2024 -- two years longer than expected -- when it will hit some 60% of gross domestic product, rather than 56%, as previously forecast. The budget deficit is also set to widen. The rand slipped to a near two-week-low against the U.S. dollar, with one buck last buying 14.5760 rand, up more than 2% from 14.2569 late Tuesday in New York. The iShares MSCI South Africa ETF was meanwhile down 4%.
