JOHANNESBURG - The rand traded in a narrow range for most of the European trading session yesterday according to NKC Research.
The South African currency strengthened slightly in early trade amid optimism that Brexit and US-China relations are easing, but lost ground in the afternoon trading session as US bond yields ticked higher. On the data front, the slight moderation in South African producer price inflation had little to no market impact. At the close of local trade, the rand quoted 0.3 percent weaker at R14.15/$, after trading the in range of R14.07/$ - R14.22/$. The rand traded weaker overnight. Expected range today R14.05/$ - R14.35/$.
