South Africa

Reason for this visit

South Africa is an emerging market economy that implements a free floating exchange rate system, and exchange rate is susceptible to fluctuations due to external factors. The South African foreign exchange market was under strict control in the early stage of its establishment. However, with the gradual relaxation of foreign exchange control, the participants in the real economy can utilize foreign exchange characterized by high flexibility in a larger scope, and the linkage between domestic and foreign financial markets has become closer. In 2017, the total trading volume of foreign exchange derivatives on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange in South Africa hit 67.3 million lots, with a turnover of 900 billion South African rand. At present, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange offers a total of 25 foreign exchange futures and 15 foreign exchange options products. In addition to conventional futures and options contracts, South Africa has also made many innovations in the design of foreign exchange derivatives, such as the development of futures contracts that track a basket of exchange rates, customized futures contracts with optional expiry dates, and dual currency forex futures and options contracts on cross currency pairs. Forex traders in South Africa are among the wealthiest people on the continent, and their rich lifestyle influences aspiring traders. Many people in the country are fascinated by the stories of successful people, which makes forex trading even more popular.
