    • SA Rand Price Analysis: ZAR Gains as CPI (5.9%) Fuels Rate Hike Probability   SA Inflation Reaches Upper Bound of 3-6% Target Band South African Rand – The Best Performing Currency vs the Dollar in 2022   SA INFLATION REACHES UPPER BOUND OF 3-6% TARGET BAND Yesterday, StatsSA released Consumer Price Index (inflation) data which revealed that general prices were almost 6% (5.9%) higher last December than in December of 2020. The South African Reserve Bank (SARB) next meets on the 27th of January where the monetary policy committee will decide on appropriate monetary policy in light of increasing prices and expected rate hikes from developed economies. Customize and filter live economic data via our DaliyFX economic calendar   SOUTH AFRICAN RAND – THE BEST PERFORMING CURRENCY VS THE DOLLAR IN 2022 The title of best performing currency vs the greenback comes with a disclaimer. The Rand depreciated against the dollar in November and attempted to consolidate throughout December, meaning that the Rand was due some sort of pullback or return to strength. Luckily for the ZAR, it was the dollar that experienced a halt and subsequent decline in its trajectory as speculation of an increasingly hawkish Fed - in response to inflation - became largely priced in. The recent lift in commodity prices has also helped boost the Rand as gold and platinum prices witnessed sizeable moves, while iron ore lags some way behind.
