New Zealand Dollar Forecast: NZD Price Action Eyes GDP Data Due

Rich Dvorak, Analyst

NEW ZEALAND DOLLAR FORECAST: KIWI TURNS TO 3Q GDP DATA – NZD LEVELS TO WATCH

  • The New Zealand Dollar will come into the spotlight late during Wednesday’s trading session at 21:45 GMT with gross domestic product data due for release
  • NZD prices appear primed for big moves as forex traders respond to the 3Q GDP report out of New Zealand judging by above-average readings of Kiwi overnight implied volatility
  • The RBNZ could be pressured to ease monetary policy further if signs of economic weakness revealed in upcoming New Zealand GDP data translates into softer inflation and employment

NZD price action will be front and center later today with the Kiwi due to react sharply to upcoming 3Q New Zealand GDP report due at 21:45 GMT. Correspondingly, New Zealand Dollar overnight implied volatility is spiking to extremes ahead of the high-impact data release (detailed on the DailyFX economic calendar).

NZD/USD PRICE CHART: WEEKLY TIME FRAME (JANUARY 2018 TO DECEMBER 2019)

NZDUSD Price Chart New Zealand Dollar Technical Analysis

Turning attention to a weekly NZD/USD price chart brings to focus the Kiwi’s longstanding downtrend against its US counterpart. Though the New Zealand Dollar is flirting with a topside breakout above this negatively-sloped trendline extended through the April 2018, March 2019 and December 2019 swing highs recorded by spot NZD/USD.

That said, upcoming 3Q New Zealand GDP report could provide traders with a fundamental catalyst that propels the Kiwi above this area of technical resistance or sends NZD/USD prices pivoting back lower. This will likely be predicated by changes in Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) interest rate cut probabilities.
