  • The rand remains vulnerable to further weakness
  • Brent crude held losses after falling into bear market as concern the U.S.-China trade war will continue to sap demand outweighed an industry report showing American crude stockpiles are still shrinking
  • Asian markets have not followed the US higher as hopes of easing trade tensions dissipate; Whispers of a fair value level of 7.50 for the CNY are keeping investors on the sidelines; Expect increased volatility, as the EM blanket selling should continue
