Again, 31 buyer not there, turned seller on approach from below and then traded down. No doubt sellers reacting with driving down and buyers with drifting up ... weak dollar persisting and strong oil. euro$ seller at 1.1399 turned buyer this am and defended well for more up.

This pair is heading to 10, that much is self evident. The ZAR is highly oversold.

Alexandro do you care to explain how it is self evident that this pair is heading to 10...what makes it so self evident? Certainly not the political turmoil and instability in South Africa. And also when do you see this pair hit 10? Next year or sooner?

So we drifted up as expected but did not drive higher. Hit Seller at 61 on the nose with good seller reaction, stronger than buyer reaction from 31. Focus is back on 31 to see how buyer react. $ weakness obviously driving this and bid in oil good for ZAR. Would not be surprised to see stronger buyer reaction from 14.31 this time around. $ seller in control last 2 sessions, looks to continue, 1.1315 eur$ buyer defends, and 1.1399 seller.
