South Africa's rand holds its own despite global tensions, local strike JOHANNESBURG: South Africa's rand traded virtually unchanged against the dollar on Tuesday, with market watchers expecting the currency to stay in narrow ranges given a lack of significant news to steer it.The rand has been resilient despite general global risk aversion spawned by political tensions in Ukraine and the Middle East, coupled with a domestic wage strike by metals and engineering workers now entering its fourth week.At 0647 GMT the currency traded at 10.6125 versus the greenback, just 0.09 percent off its previous close and within easy reach of Monday's three week high of 10.5975.Analysts said global markets were mainly focussed on U.S. consumer inflation data on Tuesday which could give pointers on when the Federal Reserve will start raising rates."The bigger worry for the rand remains an about-turn from the Fed on inflation risks and resultant re-pricing in the Treasury market which would negatively impact on capital flows towards ...

Early last week, it hit a more than one-year closing high."We do not see much pressure on the currency. But there are some heavy import bills ...

Dollar index rises to 6-week high LONDON: The dollar index rose to a six-week high on Tuesday, buoyed by its gains against the euro as speculators bet on a robust inflation reading in the United States to contrast with the very low price growth in the euro zone.Both headline and core consumer price index rates are seen steady at 2.1 percent and 2.0 percent respectively, with stronger data likely to push the euro below key support in the $1.3475/80 area, traders ...
