Wizard what a tricky question - diamonds are sold in $ in RSA - the Rapaport Diamond report price (pricelist from New York, used by most traders in RSA) increased for the best quality internally flawless D colour 1,0ct diamond about 6% OVER THE LAST 3 YEARS. The rand decreased against the dollar from R6.90 to R7.30 over that period (also about 6%). So depending on the quality of the stone - the availability - the r/$ one could say that the wholesale diamond price increased by about 12% over the past 3 years. What a tough market. In comparison with the 1oz Kruger that went from R2750 to R5100 (some 85%) over the same period. Hope it answers your question.

I'm assuming what CE is referring to is the constant flipping between "normal work" and trading... when the boss walks in you gotta hit Alt Tab to bring up the very exciting Excel spreadsheet! Haha... so true! Something along the same lines... I think on skybet.com or something it's got a hyperlink saying: "Boss coming, look busy!" You click on it and it takes you to a page full of Excel graphs and charts! Classic!

I don't think so. Unless the ZAR completely collapses I believe the next move in rates will be down but probably only next year sometime.
