Currently the 10.80- 10.75 level is a convenient area to short the USDZAR pair. I think the upward movement is restricted by a number of fundamental factors such as the possibility of more interest rate hikes by the SARB, the end of the platinum strike etc. I beleive the trend now is downwards.

for those who use the USDOLLAR index (fxcm) you will see the price action obviously mimics this pair, the usd had been in a 3 yr bull market, times have changed, only sell on rise, like all emerging markets (usd/try, eur/try) they are all in a bear market cycle....it is not hard to see where it is going, it wouldnt surprise me at all if we see 6 in the next 2 years, (Eliot wave theory) and again, like any cycle, you buy and you hold at the bottom of the market... very simple, there is plenty of information on the web about it....start adding shorts on these lines and hold.
