Foreign exchange reserves in South Africa rose to USD 54.14 billion in May of 2021 from USD 53.69 billion in the previous month. This was the largest foreign exchange reserves since January, mainly due to the increase in the US dollar gold price, valuation adjustments due to asset price and currency movements and matured foreign exchange swaps conducted for sterilisation and liquidity management purposes. The increase in the forward book largely reflects liquidity injection swaps conducted during April which matured during May, offset by maturing swaps conducted for sterilisation purposes. These factors were partially offset by foreign exchange payments made on behalf of government. source: South African Reserve Bank
