    Key Quotes

    “The market is almost evenly split about whether the South African Reserve bank will hike rates today; we think they can wait a bit longer”.

    “Of the 26 analysts polled by Bloomberg, 16 see no hike and 10 see a 25 bp hike to 6.25%”.

    “Analysts are also looking for a tightening cycle roughly at a pace of 25 bp per quarter. This strikes us as too aggressive, and we see a much more cautious approach”.

    “October CPI came in as expected at 4.7% y/y vs. 4.6% in September, while September retail sales were weaker than expected at 2.7% y/y vs. a revised 4.0% (was 3.9%) in August”.
