South Africa's gross foreign reserves inched lower to USD 50.17 billion in October of 2018 from USD 50.39 billion in a month earlier. The decrease of USD 228 million mainly reflected the foreign currency payments made on behalf of the government and the appreciation of the USD against other currencies, which were partially offset by the matured foreign exchange swaps conducted for liquidity management purposes and the increase in the USD gold price. Foreign Exchange Reserves in South Africa averaged 29744.77 USD Million from 1998 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 51889 USD Million in February of 2012 and a record low of 5316 USD Million in September of 1998.
