South Africa exchange rate outlook Q3 2015

Report summary

The South African rand has depreciated rapidly in the past few years. Weak economic growth and falling prices for key commodity exports have weighed on the currency. Has the rand reached the end of its slump, or is further depreciation likely? With the country's economic outlook remaining poor, it is tough to find reasons to be positive about the future value of the rand.
