5 Min MarketScope Chart Created by Adrian Robles

The NZDUSD was trading in a tight range leading up the announcement, but clearly declined following the new release. The initial reaction in the Kiwi was a three pip drop with the pair settling around 0.8067 (at time of writing).

JP Morgan’s Global Manufacturing PMI had already predicted, on a global scale, a decline in the manufacturing sector for the month of July. The Global Manufacturing PMI survey also noted that New Orders are contracting a faster rate than the previous month. Although New Zealand seemed to be one of the exceptions during July, New Zealand’s manufactures reported an increase in New Orders, which are growing at a faster rate than the month prior.
