NZD/USD Bearish Outlook Hinges on RBNZ Forward-Guidance

NZD/USD Bearish Outlook Hinges on RBNZ Forward-Guidance

- Reserve Bank of New Zealand to Implement Back-to-Back Rate Cuts for First Time Since 2009.

Trading the News: Reserve Bank of New Zealand Interest Rate Decision

NZD/USD may extend the decline from earlier this year as Bloomberg News survey shows all of the 19 economists polled anticipate at least at 25bp rate cut from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ), and the pair may face further headwinds throughout the remainder of the year should the central bank endorse a dovish forward-guidance for monetary policy.

What’s Expected:

Why Is This Event Important:

However, a material shift in the central bank rhetoric may heavily influence the New Zealand dollar over the near-term, and signs of an end to the RBNZ’s easing cycle along with a softening of the verbal intervention may undermine the bearish sentiment surrounding the New Zealand dollar and pave the way for a more meaningful rebound in the exchange rate.

Waning confidence paired fears of a slower recovery may encourage the RBNZ to implement a back-to-back rate cut, and another round of monetary support may generate fresh 2015 lows in the exchange rate should Governor Graeme Wheeler keep the door open for lower borrowing-costs.

However, the RBNZ may look to conclude its easing cycle amid improving demand from home and abroad, and the New Zealand dollar may face a larger correction in the days ahead should the central bank endorse a wait-and-see approach.

June 2015 Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) Interest Rate Decision

NZD/USD Chart

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) unexpectedly cut the Official Cash Rate (OCR) to 3.25% from 3.50%, with the central bank endorsing a dovish forward-guidance for monetary policy in an effort to combat the disinflationary environment. The shift in central bank rhetoric suggests that the RBNZ will continue to offer lower borrowing-costs to boost price pressures, and the New Zealand dollar remains at risk of facing a further decline over the near to medium-term as Governor Graeme Wheeler retains the verbal intervention on the local currency. The New Zealand dollar tumbled lower following the rate cut, with NZD/USD sliding below the 0.7100 handle and closing the Asia/Pacific session at 0.7017.
