It's interesting to see the DXY is up +0.38, the EURUSD pair is down -0.37 and USDZAR pair stuck at 13.30 range (up to +0.37). In other days this would be flying...

It's pushing up a bit now. My feeling is that we'll see further upward movement once SARB announces that there will be no rate hike tomorrow. While that's widely expected I think traders might be being cautious just in case there is a hike. Once they're sure there isn't going to be they'll be taking more long positions and pushing this up. Of course there are always other factors and I'm not the best at predicting, but it seems reasonable.

Come on.. this pair why does it behave like this most of the time? The DXY was down in red at 94.17/20 when the pair was heading up at 13.27. Now the DXY has gone up to 94.49/50 the pair has chosen the south road... USDZAR 13.23 Any logic in this really??

There is logic but...I suspect that it's much like weather - a chaotic system. 100% predictable if you know all inputs but knowing all inputs is not likely and perhaps impossible. ---- What I am sure of: there are many factors which influence it and their influences can complement or negate one another to differing extents. And SA politics/stability combined with general sentiment about emerging markets often has a much stronger effect than the USD value.

Definitely the pair to 13 or close to 13 will arrive, the futures in emerging currencies added to the long net positions, have manipulated the minds of the people so that they desiciesen of emergent currencies and have availed themselves of the carry trade

This is an interesting pair. It seems to follow the dxy though... I’ve been trying to study the two. Apparently, 10am-3pm NY time are th worst hours for the USD dollar. I guess that would explain why it’s sinking again. Overall it’s in a downtrend fromehat I see on the daily chart. I see it going back to test 13.254 and if that breaks, 13.000 Also, I heard ZAR AND TRY correlate
