This is my view (said it on Friday and before) - We are finally out of the upward channel we have been in since Feb 2018 (with some breakouts but ultimately returns). We are now in a sideways channel since mid Aug and I expect to be ranging between R14.15 and R14.35. There ill be occasional testing and breakouts like the last 2 days but ultimately I believe we will range for the next month or 2. I do believe that Moody's will change outlook to negative when they review again which might influence the trend but I don't expect any major course changes as both the resistance at R14.70-ish is very strong and also the support at about R14.12.

If you have enough equity you have to wait this NG tsunami wave out until March/April. I will start sell again at the end of January or beginning of February

Looking at the day candles I see this current range as the trend (although you do interpret the 5h's correctly). For me the today and yesterday is return t the channel after testing. I think we are in for a range above R14.15. Again this is ony my view and we are talking ZAR here...

Depends on what timeframe you are referring to. In the next 2 months we might touch it and recede but I doubt that it will park there for any significant time. My view is that we will range R14.15-R14.35 for the next month or so.. I do not expect ending the year higher than R14.70 or below R14.00

I reckon we're in a very nice and wide 13.90 to 14.10 range at the moment. We should test 13.90 and the domc comments are undoubtedly going to be hawkish which might get us up to 14.10 again. Let's see
