will move mostly according to factors via U.S data this week. More inflation numbers will come, but growth statistics will also be seen in the coming days from the States and the currency pair will react. However, the South African Rand also suffers from poor sentiment regarding its economic outlook domestically. The coming election in South Africa is also making financial institutions nervous it is difficult to quantify the amount of nervous sentiment that is affecting the USD/ZAR because of uncertainty regarding the election results which will be seen in South Africa at the end of May, financial institutions are likely taking a negative viewpoint as a lack of clarity looms.
