JOHANNESBURG - The rand rebounded sharply following lower-than-expected CPI figures from the US as well as a decline in US stocks Bianca Botes the Corporate Treasury Manager at Peregrine Treasury Solutions:

No local data is due today, while US retail sales will set the tone for this afternoon.

Trading at R14.56/$, the rand is currently stable with a range of R14.48 to R14.70 on the cards for the day.
