We saw real money buying early in the week and it looks like a continuation of that," said a local fixed income dealer.   Bonds and the currency were finding support on Friday as some dealers said the selling looked overdone, even though there was a risk of yields spiking again.   The rand was at 8.9330/ dollar at 0644 GMT, after weakening to nearly 9 rand on Thursday, which would be a 3-1/2 year low.  "There was a general risk-off scenario around the world and the charge into risk assets dissipated ...

South Africa bonds, rand firm ahead of medium-term budget  JOHANNESBURG: South African government bonds rose on Thursday after higher-than-expected inflation data in the previous session with trading expected to be thin ahead of the Treasury's release of the medium-term budget later in the day.   The yield on the benchmark 3-year bond and the longer dated 14 year paper were both 2 basis points lower at 5.44 and 7.685 percent respectively.   By 0651 GMT, the rand was trading at 8.73 to the dollar, 0.6 percent firmer than ...
Morocco delays $1bn sovereign bond sale: minister  RABAT: Morocco has delayed its maiden dollar bond sale to end-November pending market stability, the budget minister said in published remarks on Wednesday, but banks have already been mandated for an issue that may exceed the initial $1 billion mark.   The delay's announcement, carried by L'Economiste newspaper, comes amid speculation King Mohammed would soon make a rare official tour of the Gulf Arab region from where Rabat hopes to raise a substantial share of the issue.   Initially ...
South African bonds weaken as market sees more issuance  JOHANNESBURG: South African government bonds weakened in early Thursday trade and the rand hovered near early-September lows as worries about the euro zone debt crisis came to the fore and investors fretted about the weak domestic economic outlook.   The yield on the three-year benchmark added two basis points to 5.335 percent and that for the 14-year issue, which is also heavily traded on the secondary market, was up 2.5 basis points at 7.515 percent.   The market was ...
