New Zealand Dollar Gains as China Scraps One Child Policy

New Zealand Dollar Gains as China Scraps One Child Policy

Talking Points:

  • Kiwi Dollar Outperforms Against Aussie as China Scraps One-Child Policy
  • US Price Growth Data Boosts Fed Rate Hike Outlook, Boosting US Dollar
  • See Economic Releases Right on Your Charts with the DailyFX News App

The Australian and New Zealand Dollars outperformed in overnight trade. The two sentiment-linked currencies advanced alongside S&P 500 futures, hinting the move reflected firming risk appetite. The Kiwi pulled ahead of its Aussie counterpart asChina announced a decision to scrap its one-child policy. The move may fuel greater milk powder demand, amounting to a windfall for New Zealand dairy exporters.

Risk appetite was surprisingly durable despite a Bank of Japandecision to withhold additional stimulus. Options markets were heavily skewed in favor of Yen weakness ahead of today’s policy announcement, with the premium paid for the right to sell the currency compared with the right to buy rising to a five-year high. That suggested investors were betting on a dovish result. BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda and company saw things otherwise, voting 8-1in favor of the status quo.

Looking ahead, stock index futures hint the risk-on mood may continue. US news-flow is in focus on the data front, with September’s PCE inflation and third-quarter Employment Cost Index figures on the docket. Improvements are expected on both fronts, which may amplify the probability of a December Fed rate hike in the minds of investors and push the US Dollar higher.
