Global economic worries weigh on S.Africa's assets

By Phumza Macanda and Tiisetso Motsoeneng

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South African bonds weakened against the dollar on Tuesday partly on limited foreign participation at an auction earlier in the session.

The rand fell against the dollar as emerging markets lost out to safer assets after the International Monetary Fund warned of threats to the global economic recovery.

Bonds weakened after poor demand at the auction.

The yield on the 2015 bond went up two basis points to 7.785 percent and that on the 2026 issue climbed nine basis points to 8.785 percent.

"There's still a lot of paper in the market after the auction. I don't think the foreigners came to the party much today and we rely on them to keep yields lower," said Ashley Dickinson, bonds trader at Renaissance BJM.

"Yields are going to struggle to go much lower, we've tested the bottom. If anything ... bonds are going to go weaker," he added.

Investors turned their backs on emerging markets after the IMF highlighted risks to the global recovery and Japan raised the level of its nuclear crisis.

Domestic stocks followed global markets down, led by mining shares.

The rand -- a heavily traded currency that is seen as a barometer for risk sentiment -- hit a one-week low of 6.7350 to the dollar and fell to its weakest in nearly three weeks against the euro.

By 1550 GMT, it was trading at 6.7235 to the dollar, 0.5 percent weaker than Monday's New York close of 6.6885.

Should the rand pierce 6.77, it will be seen a signal for further losses. The 6.77 level is the 23.6 percent retracement of the rand's fall in mid-March to 7.2150.

Given the bare local economic calendar, local assets will likely take their cue from global developments.


On the bourse, the JSE Top-40 blue-chip index was down 1.92 percent at 29,025.16 points and the broader All-share index gave up 1.75 percent to 32,239.87.

In addition to the IMF report, Alcoa's below-forecast revenue added to the bearish sentiment.

"There's fear generally about global economic growth ... also Alcoa results missed expectations," Martin Lentsoane, a trader at NEWS Trading said.

Miners took the most points off the South African blue-chip index, tracking commodity prices as Japan's worsening nuclear crisis and aftershocks weakened prospects for metals demand growth.

Anglo American dropped 4.57 percent to 348.81 rand, making it the biggest percentage loser on the benchmark index.

Sasol lost 3.35 percent to 374 rand, as the price of oil fell after Goldman Sachs call for a near $20 fall in the price of Brent crude oil.

Palabora Mining shed 3.71 percent to 141.55 rand after the unit of Rio Tinto said quarterly ore output fell 8 percent.
