Johannesburg - South African stocks hit record highs for the third straight trading session on Tuesday, edging up as the weaker rand currency helped to lift battered stocks like Impala Platinum (Implats).

On Monday, a robust performance by gold and platinum counters lifted the JSE to a record high to close at  43 291 points.
