Trump announces US withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal with plans to impose strict sanctions.
Uncertainty of global oil supplies grows as countries who continue business with Iran may be penalized and feel the burn. With oil prices on the rise, markets expect future inflation increases and see further support for future US Fed hikes. Are we set to see a third consecutive month of petrol price increases?
We’ll have to wait and see. Alongside other EM markets the rand opened weaker at 12.57/USD as markets try to make sense of Trumps decision. US inflation data out at 14h30 will be the only real highlight for the day. Cheers and have a wonderful Wednesday!
