NZD/USD to Carve Higher-Low on Hawkish RBNZ Forward-Guidance

NZD/USD to Carve Higher-Low on Hawkish RBNZ Forward-Guidance

David Song, Strategist

- RBNZ Expected to Raise the Cash Rate for the Fourth Consecutive Meeting.

- Benchmark Interest Rate of 3.50% Would Mark the Highest Level Since 2009.

Trading the News: Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) Rate Decision

Despite expectations of seeing another 25bp rate hike from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ), the forward-guidancefor monetary policy will be the key focus as market participants see the central bank taking a pause from its normalization cycle.

What’s Expected:

NZD/USD RBNZ

Why Is This Event Important:

Indeed, the weaker-than-expected 2Q Consumer Price Index (CPI) has dragged on interest rate expectations as the resilience in the New Zealand dollar dampens the outlook for price growth, and the NZD/USD may face a larger correction over the near-term should the central bank soften its hawkish tone for monetary policy.

The pickup in household confidence along with the ongoing improvement in employment may encourage the RBNZ to retain a very hawkish tone for monetary policy, and the NZD/USD may recoup the losses from earlier this month should Governor Graeme Wheeler show a greater willingness to deliver another rate hike later this year.

Nevertheless, the RBNZ may strike a more balanced tone for the region amid the slowdown in private sector consumption along with the limited pickup in price growth, and the New Zealand dollar may continue to press fresh monthly lows should the fresh batch of central bank rhetoric drag on interest rate expectations.

Bullish NZD Trade: RBNZ Hikes to 3.50% & Retains Hawkish Forward-Guidance

NZD/USD Chart

The headline reading for New Zealand inflation unexpectedly slowed during the first three-months of 2014, with the CPI figure slipping to an annualized 1.5% from 1.6% in the fourth quarter. The New Zealand dollar struggled to hold its ground following the dismal print, with the NZD/USD moving back below the 0.8600 handle, but the higher-yielding currency pared the losses during the North American trade to close at 0.8622.
