S.Africa's rand and stocks weaker on risk aversion

By Phumza Macanda and Mmathabo Tladi

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - South Africa's rand weakened slightly against the dollar on Monday and local stocks edged lower taking their cue from negative sentiment in global markets on the back of Greece.

The local scene has been largely quiet and the Greece debt crisis has dominated markets, leading investors to trim exposure to risky assets after euro zone finance ministers postponed giving that country emergency loans.

Government bonds bucked the trend after a heavy sell-off last week attracted some bargain hunters. Foreign investors sold off local debt last week for the first time in three-months, pushing yields to three-week highs.

The yield on the 2015 bond fell four basis points to 7.52 percent and that on the 2026 note was unchanged from the previous close at 8.615 percent.

Reaction to the weekend's ANC Youth League conference at which re-elected leader Julius Malema re-iterated his calls for mines nationalisation was muted in the local market.

The ruling ANC distanced itself from the Youth League's rhetoric but nationalisation talk is likely to worry investors.

The rand was trading at 6.7772 against the dollar at 1600 GMT, 0.3 percent softer than Friday's New York close of 6.76. It was off session low of 6.8350 seen earlier.

"With the rand tracking the euro very closely, the fortunes of the rand are tied to the Greek situation," said IFR, a Thomson Reuters markets and news service.

The rand has strong support in the 6.83 area -- also its 50 day moving average -- which it has failed to break convincingly after three attempts.

Markets will watch current account data out at 0800 GMT Wednesday, which could weigh on the rand if the deficit is wider than the 3.0 percent to GDP shortfall the market expects.

On the bourse, the JSE Top-40 index of blue chips shed 0.01 percent to 27,321.43 points with the rise in gold stocks lifting the index from session lows.

The gold index gained nearly 1 percent on Monday -- outperforming the All-Share index that which lost 0.14 percent at 30,627.67 -- as spot gold hit a high of $1,546.76 an ounce.

"When you look at commodity prices they are on the back foot with the exception of gold and silver," said a Cape Town-based trader that did not want to be named.

"We are looking for a rebound in that sector (gold). We might see the gains follow through during the month."

Junior miner Simmer & Jack bucked the trend in gold miners and plunged 95 percent to end at 3 rand after announcing it would cut 1,200 jobs.

Stocks that started to trade without the right to the latest dividend on Monday, such as retailer Mr. Price and Adcock also fell deeply.

Copper producer Palabora Mining fell nearly 7 percent on news that it faces unexpected tax consequences as its BEE transaction had not been implemented yet.
