Financial markets continue to look forward to the second half of 2021 with an expected strong economic recovery as the world emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic.
With this backdrop in mind, some key market takeaways include:
Locally, stronger commodity prices continue to support the balance of trade account (also positive for tax collections), helping the Rand to strengthen. This coupled with attractive real yields has seen foreign investors re-enter the local market. Headwinds remain, a very “slow” vaccine roll-out, Eskom challenges as well as continued infighting within the ruling party, although much progress has been made in President Ramaphosa’s drive to route out corruption in SA.
