The NZDUSD was in a general up trend during today’s trading session and pull back slightly before the announcement. The pair surged following the announcement reaching just a few pips short of the intraday high.

The Kiwi displayed significant price action to the rate decision, despite the fact that market participant were only pricing in an 8 percent chance of a 25 bps rate cut. The appreciation may have been trader’s reaction to the press release. The press release mitigated concerns that the economic conditions in New Zealand would require a rate cut, which would make the Kiwi’s carry trade less attractive.
