Outlook for NZ Dollar Ahead of First RBNZ Policy Meeting in 2021

The New Zealand dollar started the week as the strongest most-traded currency on the Forex market thanks to the upgrade of the nation’s credit rating by Standard & Poor’s. What other factors will be influencing the New Zealand currency and what traders should watch for during the rest of the week?

Australian Dollar Opens Lower, Recovers

The Australian dollar opened sharply lower on Monday but has recovered afterward. The currency got a downward pressure from disappointing macroeconomic data in Australia’s biggest trading partner — China. As for macro indicators in Australia itself, they were mostly positive.

NZ Dollar Flat-to-Higher After Domestic & Chinese Economic Reports

The New Zealand dollar traded largely flat today, though it managed to gain on some of the majors, including the US dollar. The kiwi got a boost from positive domestic macroeconomic data as well as better-than-expected reports in China.

NZ Dollar Rises as Business Confidence Remains Stable, Markets Wait for US Election Results

The New Zealand dollar rose against most of its major rivals today. Markets still wait for the outcome of the US presidential election. But while uncertainty surrounding the election results make investors nervous, it seems markets are in a risk-on mode. As for New Zealand’s macroeconomic data released today, it was not bad, though it was not great either.

Australian Dollar Second Strongest Ahead of RBA Meeting

The Australian dollar was the second strongest currency on the Forex market today, losing only to the Canadian dollar. The Aussie rallied for the same reasons as the New Zealand dollar: the rebound of crude oil prices, good economic data in China, decent domestic macroeconomic reports.

NZ Dollar Refuses to Fall in Face of Negative Economic Data

Both domestic macroeconomic data and the general negative market sentiment were detrimental to the New Zealand dollar. But that did not prevent the currency from holding its ground today, rising at least a bit against all other most-traded peers, except for the Australian dollar.

NZ Dollar Flat-to-Lower as Business Confidence Deteriorates

The New Zealand dollar traded either flat or lower against its most-traded peers today, though it managed to gain on few currencies, like the US dollar and the Japanese yen. The kiwi was soft despite the news about the lockdown easing in Auckland.

New Zealand Dollar Weaker During Monday’s Subdued Trading

The New Zealand dollar traded largely lower against its most-traded peers but, surprisingly, demonstrated resilience versus safer currencies, such as the Japanese yen and the Swiss franc. Macroeconomic reports in China, New Zealand’s biggest trading partner, were decent but data in New Zealand itself was not good. Trading was subdued today, especially during the Asian session, as markets in Japan and Singapore were closed for a holiday.

NZ Dollar Rises After Employment Report Surprises Positively

The New Zealand dollar rallied today, though it has trimmed gains against some of its rivals by now. The catalyst for the rally was the release of surprisingly good domestic employment data.

NZ Dollar Strong Ahead of RBNZ Monetary Policy Decision

The New Zealand dollar was among the strongest currencies today amid the mildly positive market sentiment. The currency waits for tomorrow’s monetary policy decision from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. No economic reports were released in New Zealand today while yesterday’s data was not bad but not particularly good either.
