Today we are taking a look at:
- EM and commodity currencies strengthen for the YTD, lifted by risk-on demand and commodity prices
- Rand loses momentum, weakens into the close on Friday; pound sharply weaker due to negative economic data, euro and majors weaker as well
- Top 40 lacklustre, JSE foreign stats incorrect, US markets end positive, Asia mostly higher
- UK flash PMI dismal, partially reflect Brexit impact; Japan trade data continues to exhibit weakness.
