The pair will break down from a major support line, sending the pair lower towards a key support line.

Trade balance report on Friday, October 30, showed the country’s surplus for September adding $33.51 billion, lower than the prior month’s $38.70 billion. However, the manufacturing sector has been expanding with 60.9 points against the previous record of 58.5 points. On the other hand, figures from the US’ latest reports were better-than-expected. Investors are also looking forward to the result of the US election today, November 03. Analysts expected that a win for Joe Biden will be beneficial for South Africa as the country considers China as one of its largest trading partners.

USD/RUB

The pair will continue to move higher in the following days towards the $86.000 resistance level. While the recent report suggesting a potential win for Biden benefits the South African rand, it doesn’t do well for the Russian ruble. Moreover, the recent reports from Russia show a lagging economy amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. While most countries who published their Markit Manufacturing PMI reports turned out positive, Russia’s report was still below the 50 points benchmark. Monday’s result showed a decrease to 46.9 points from 48.9 points in September. One reason for the sluggish growth of Russia compared to other developing economies was the sanctions imposed by the United States for Russia’s annexation of Crimea. The west could further isolate the country after its refusal to its fossil fuel consumptions. Despite the overall sentiment in the Russian economy, investors should be cautious until the election results are published.
