  • Mourinho eyes early chance to strike blow on Wenger

    Jose Mourinho has played down the significance of Sunday's clash with Arsenal in the Community Shield showpiece at Wembley but a chance to strike an early blow against old adversary Arsene Wenger will prove irresistible. The traditional curtain-raiser for the new English season sees Mourinho's Premier League champions take on FA Cup winners Arsenal and it should offer plenty of clues as to what awaits both clubs over the next nine months. Wenger, who signed Chelsea's stalwart goalkeeper Petr Cech in the summer, believes his squad is now as strong as the 2003-04 Invincibles who went through the season undefeated to claim Arsenal's last Premier League title.

  • Rand recovers from 14-year lows on trade surplus

    The local unit hit its weakest in the session at 12.7700/dollar, a level last seen in December 2001, but clawed back to a high of 12.5810 after the revenue service said the trade surplus widened to 5.80 billion rand. "The ... trade balance data bolstered the rand somewhat shortly after the release, as it helped ease fears about how well South Africa will cope with U.S. monetary policy normalisation, given the country's large current account deficit," said NKC analyst Bart Stemmet. The rand has been particularly vulnerable because South Africa relies heavily on portfolio inflows to plug its current account deficit, currently at 4.8 percent of GDP.
