Adverse Trade Environment


Trade conditions have been in negative territory since May 2015 and at 47 in August 2015, the seasonally adjusted composite Trade Activity Index (TAI) remained below the critical 50 mark. The non-seasonally adjusted TAI slightly improved to 46 from 45 in July 2015 and was three index points above the bleak TAI of 43 in August 2014. There has been no easing in the tight conditions as credit extension to households decreased by 2% in real terms, reflecting highly indebted households’ inability to obtain credit. The unfavourable global economic developments also inhibited the trade climate.

Uncertain Business Climate

SACCI today released the SACCI Business Confidence Index (BCI) for August 2015 at their Offices in Rosebank, Johannesburg.
Business confidence suffered a setback in August 2015 due to subdued domestic economic performance and financial market nervousness as well as global financial market turmoil and economic uncertainty. These circumstances caused the SACCI Business Confidence Index (BCI) to retract to an even lower level than in June 2015. After increasing to 87.9 in July 2015 from 84.6 in June 2015, the SACCI BCI registered 84.3 in August 2015.

Trade Conditions Remain Tough

 
Trade conditions remained in negative territory in July 2015 with the seasonally adjusted composite Trade Activity Index (TAI) measuring 47. Although marginally up from 46 in June 2015, tighter household budgets and the subdued domestic and global economic environment kept the lid on all facets of trade. The non-seasonally adjusted TAI remained on 45 in July 2015 - the same as in July 2014. Notwithstanding trade conditions that remained negative and unchanged in July 2015, trade expectations for the next six months were slightly better and in positive territory with the Trade Expectation Index (TEI) increasing to 59 from 58 in June 2015.
