It's hard to say Hemant on generally tires to hold onto these type of sell positions for as long as possible, like many guys did with the January hike.

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.
