The USDZAR rallied from its low of the year yesterday after Trump victory forming a on the and also a . The rally saw the pair testing the falling but later closed below it on the daliy chart. there has been another rally on the pair today which has broken the daily again. This rally coincided with South African president Jacob Zuma facing corruption charges and vote of no confidence by the National Assembly that calls for Zuma exit. We therefore favour long position by the break of the daily falling around 13.89 with target @ 14.5000 as both technical and fundamentals favours the pair. Last year around December a ministerial mayhem led to the rand dropping 5% which soared the USDZAR to 17.81. President Zuma stand of corruption and vote of no confidence should weaken the Rand more.
