Pound Gets Support from Britain’s Employment Data, Gains Limited by Brexit Concerns

NZ Dollar Holds Ground, Domestic Data Helps

The New Zealand dollar opened sharply lower against some of its major rivals today but has managed to recover by now. The kiwi also extended its Friday’s gains against several other rivals. Positive domestic macroeconomic data was perhaps one of the reasons for the currency’s decent performance today.

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand surprised markets today, cutting interest rates more than was expected. As a result, the New Zealand dollar sank against almost all of its most-traded rivals.

Surprisingly, the kiwi managed to gain on the Great Britain pound, which remains under pressure from fears of a hard Brexit.

Kiwi Sees Help From PBOC Rate Cut

New Zealand dollar is gaining against some of the major currencies today, thanks in large part to the latest rate cut out of China. Kiwi is expected to remain relatively steady through the end of 2015, although the situation could change in the new year.
