Today's ZAR-XOF commentary

The interbank rate between the South African rand and the CFA franc is today near its highest level of the past 2-week period. The highest level recorded during the last fourteen days was ZAR 1 = XOF 40.2661 (the current rate of ZAR 1 = XOF 39.962 is only 0.76% less than that), reached yesterday at 3:00 PM. This high level of the ZAR-XOF exchange rate differs significantly from the much lower level (ZAR 1 = XOF 38.5224) recorded on November 15, when a transfer of 4,000 ZAR for instance only gave you 154,089.73 XOF (the exact same transfer gives you 159,847.83 XOF now, which is a difference of 5,758.1 XOF).
