Trading of complex financial products, such as Stocks, Futures, Foreign Exchange (‘Forex’), Contracts for Difference (‘CFDs’), Indices, Options, or other financial derivatives, on ‘margin’ carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to trade any of these markets you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and, therefore, you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading these markets, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any questions or doubts. Please carefully read our full ‘General Risk Disclosure’ and ‘Risk Disclosures for Financial Instruments & Investment Services’.

US dollar vs. South Africa Rand •USDZAR•



The USDZAR pairing represents two important global currencies; the US dollar and the South African rand. It is one of the most popular exotic currencies in the Forex market, and its performance is highly dependent on the correlation of the two economies. South Africa is a major economic power in Africa that relies heavily on foreign trade. The South African Rand, therefore, represents an emerging market that can be impacted greatly by developments in global commodities markets. The USD is one of the most stable forex currencies and remains as the world's primary reserve currency. The USD/ZAR is a preferred carry trade pair due to its interest rate differentials.
