New Zealand Dollar Soft After Services Sector Demonstrates Accelerating Contraction

The New Zealand dollar was rather soft today, opening sharply lower and struggling to regain its footing. That is despite the market sentiment that was supportive of riskier currencies linked to commodities, such as the New Zealand dollar. Domestic macroeconomic data was negative for the kiwi.

Great Britain Pound Mixed After Economic Data, Vaccine Export News

The Great Britain pound was mixed on Monday, rising against some peers and falling versus others. The majority of macroeconomic reports released in Britain during the trading session beat expectations. Also supporting the sterling was the news that the European Union will not restrict vaccine exports to the United Kingdom.

Great Britain Pound Mixed as UK Enters New Lockdown

The Great Britain pound was mixed today after the United Kingdom has entered a new lockdown due to a surge of new coronavirus cases caused by the new strain of the COVID-19. The sterling fell against commodity currencies, gained on the US dollar, and was about flat versus other most-traded currencies.

Sterling Mixed on Hopes for Brexit Deal, Rising Manufacturing PMI

NZ Dollar Climbs on Reduced Chances for Negative Interest Rates, Retreats Later

The New Zealand dollar jumped yesterday and was trying to extend its rally today but failed to do so and has retreated by now. The reason for the jump was easy to pinpoint — the less certain outlook for negative interest rates from New Zealand’s central bank. The reason for the retreat is harder to identify but the most likely factor is the rally of the US dollar.

NZ Dollar Mixed After Economic Data, Ahead of Election

The New Zealand dollar was mixed today, though it largely did not go far from the opening level against its major rivals. The notable exceptions were the Great Britain pound and the Australian dollar, with the former demonstrating a decent gain and the latter showing a decline versus the kiwi.

Sterling Tanks After BoE Talks About Negative Interest Rates

The Great Britain pound sank today, overtaking the New Zealand dollar as the weakest currency on the Forex market during Thursday’s trading.

NZ Dollar Rises After Announcement of Restrictions Easing

The New Zealand dollar rose today, managing to log gains against all other most-traded currencies (though by now, the kiwi has erased its rally versus the Great Britain pound). The likely reason for the currency’s great performance was the news about the easing of coronavirus-related restrictions in the country. The positive general market sentiment also likely played its part in the rally.
