Rand off its high and now the reality check
USD/ZAR may well trickle down and exceed our 11.50 target, especially with a close under the monthly ichimoku cloud likely, but a reality check might slow the Rand’s advance near term. The Rand breathes easier as nine years of Zuma control end but now the hard work begins for the ANC. ANC leader, Cyril Ramaphosa was officially sworn in as president Thursday after a lengthy deadlock with former president Jacob Zuma. A tough but generally optimistic and fruitful period for investors, but now the heavy political policy lifting begins. Ramaphosa has pledged to fight corruption and bring investors back to South Africa. The new president will deliver the state of the nation address at 1700GMT Friday and his rhetoric on growth and corruption will be watched closely as the public, rating agencies and investors will no doubt be courted with promises. The Rand has been riding the Ramaphosa wave since mid-November, up near 21% vs the USD, 10-year S.A bond yields are down around 140-bps and stocks have put on just under 10% in February and 5% Thursday alone. USD/ZAR Monthly Chart:

EUR/USD Large 1.26-1.27 barriers key to 1.30 door
EUR/USD traded to a new 3-year high at 1.2556 today amid continued USD weakness but further gains are likely to be hard fought given major resistances now close by. The setback from the previous 3-year high at 1.2538 (25 Jan) saw the options market buying good amounts of 1-month expiry EUR call RKO structures – the right to buy EUR call vanilla options, as long as attached triggers are still intact at expiry. These triggers were mostly placed at 1.2700 but talk since suggests that 1.2600 also featured prominently and is thus likely to be defended (expiries late Feb). Recent vanilla option flows have mostly been short-dated strikes looking for EUR/USD to remain within 1.21-1.2600 near-term. Strong technical resistance 1.2570-00 is likely to encourage top-picking. That said, moves over 1.2600 and especially 1.2700, may lead to a quick extension to 1.3000+ as current option coverage looks extremely light (see below) exacerbating the impact of buy stops above triggers/barriers and any short-covering.
