Johannesburg - Share prices on the JSE rallied once again on Friday, after the market opened higher on the previous two days to end the day in the red.
Currency fluctuations throughout the world, which also affected the rand, were the main force driving markets on Friday as investors wait for the latest US payroll data later in the day. This will give a good indication of what will happen to US interest rates in the near future.
The All-share index on the JSE was supported on Friday by the big dual-listed shares, most of which are also listed in London and followed the FTSE index higher. They also benefited from a weaker rand.
