NZD/USD lags the market
The New Zealand dollar is the worst performing major currency today in a 0.8% fall against the US dollar. The decline comes after a report saying the RBNZ was working on a plan for unconventional policy strategy, while working it was at a very early stage.
Naturally, it’s only preparation (just in case) but with rates nearing the zero bound, it shows that New Zealand isn’t afraid to experiment.
Technically, the drop isn’t particularly damaging. It slows the uptrend but it was stretched on the recent move anyway.
Ultimately, trade is going to decide what the next move is for markets at the moment, it’s creeping towards a better outcome.
