NZDUSD Rises On RBNZ Official Cash Rate Hold

NZDUSD Rises On RBNZ Official Cash Rate Hold

Tyler Amend,

Talking Points:

- NZD RBNZ leaves cash rate unchanged.

- Hawkish RBNZ Governor Wheeler strengthens New Zealand economic outlook.

- NZDUSD charges to 0.7821 before finding resistance.

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand left its official cash rate unchanged at 3.50% in line with analyst expectations. The RBNZ has reiterated its earlier sentiment that the current Kiwi exchange rate is unjustified and unsustatinable. They expect a broadbased devaluation in the Kiwi across the board. Non-Tradeable inflation has remained subdued and has left the RBNZ expecting a rate rise “at a later stage.”

A Hawkish RBNZ Governor Wheeler stated that the New Zealand Economy is expected to grow faster than capacity during the next two years. He believes that fallilng Oil prices are beneficial and expected to boost growth expectations. Governor Wheeler did not comment on the effects of falling dairy prices, which are a staple in the Kiwi economy.
