Im Buying from 14.01 to 14.62 with an aggressive second take profit a 14.85 we will then have a 61.8 retrace lower then we will hit 15.00 in 2016.

Sorry guys but the Rand will weaken against the USDollar right through to 2016. USA got a problem with export to South Africa, if this problem not sorted out before end of December there is trouble coming. Dollar get stronger and Gold price will drop more what also put more pressure on the Rand. I say buy ZAR but it is your choice end of the day.

I agree. I took long positions against the dollar but the drawdown has been quite high this week. Almost thought I made the wrong choice but this is re-affirming.

I agree. It looks to me like long positions are a better choice. Do you think it will hit 15 anytime soon?
