SOUTH AFRICAN MARKETS

South Africa's rand ZAR=D3 slipped to a one-year low on Friday as fears of a ratings downgrade resurfaced on reports President Jacob Zuma is preparing to introduce free tertiary education.

GLOBAL MARKETS

Asian shares stepped back in cautious trade on Monday as investors look to see whether U.S. Republicans can hammer a tax reform deal quickly, while the British pound fell on growing doubts over Prime Minister Theresa May's leadership.

WALL STREET

Wall Street ended marginally lower on Friday, with losses in Intel and Apple as investors worried about the future of promised corporate tax cuts following dueling plans unveiled by Republican lawmakers.

GOLD

Gold prices were little changed on Monday, but held near the previous session's low, pressured by a firmer dollar and expectations of a series of interest rate hikes by the U.S. Federal Reserve this year and in 2018.
