NZ Dollar Drops After RBNZ Announces QE Program

The New Zealand dollar dropped today after the Reserve Bank of New Zealand made a surprise announcement of a quantitative easing program. Currently, the kiwi has trimmed its losses but is still trading below the opening level against its most-traded counterparts, with the exception of the Australian dollar. The Aussie was dragged down by bond purchases under the quantitative easing program of its own central bank.

NZ Dollar Sinks to New Multi-Year Lows Even After Decent GDP Report

The New Zealand dollar dropped to new multi-year lows against other most-traded currencies today. Losses were across the board as the kiwi was falling even against other vulnerable commodity currencies. Even the GDP report that came out in line with expectations was unable to help the New Zealand currency.

NZ Dollar Retreats After Short-Lived Rally

The New Zealand dollar fell today against other most-traded currencies, logging the fifth consecutive session of decline against its US counterpart. While the kiwi rose a bit yesterday after the government announced a stimulus package, the rally was short-lived as risk aversion dragged the currency down.

NZ Dollar Tumbles After Emergency Interest Rate Cut from RBNZ

The US Federal Reserve was not the only central bank to make a surprise interest rate cut at the start of the week. The Reserve Bank of New Zealand also announced an emergency cut overnight. Unsurprisingly, the New Zealand dollar reacted negatively to the announcement, opening sharply lower at the start of trading. While the kiwi has trimmed losses by now, it is still trading below the opening level against other currencies, even the US dollar.

New Zealand Dollar Mixed amid Negative Sentiment, Conflicting Economic Reports

The New Zealand dollar was mixed today, managing to gain on some major currencies, even as the market sentiment remained unfavorable to riskier currencies linked to commodities. Domestic macroeconomic data was not helpful, failing to provide a clear picture of New Zealand’s economy. One of the reports released over Thursday’s session beat expectations while the other one was not good.

NZD Struggles to Bounce After Opening Lower on Coronavirus Panic

The New Zealand dollar opened sharply lower today as markets were in a panic mode as the coronavirus was spreading from China to other parts of the world. While the currency is trying to trim its losses, it is still trading far below Friday’s close. Mixed domestic macroeconomic data was not helping the kiwi.

Kiwi Pulls Back After Surging on RBNZ Decision, Trims Losses Later

The New Zealand dollar retreated today after yesterday’s surge caused by the central bank’s monetary policy announcement. But by now, the currency has trimmed its losses and trades not that far from the opening level. The market sentiment put pressure on the currency as traders continued to be worried about the spreading Wuhan coronavirus.

NZ Dollar Little Changed After Mixed Employment Data

The New Zealand dollar was little changed today as local markets were closed for a holiday. The currency did not show a clear trend yesterday either after the release of mixed employment data in New Zealand.

NZ Dollar Among Weakest Currencies Despite Trade Surplus

The New Zealand dollar, together with its Australian counterpart, was the weakest among most-traded currencies on the Forex market today. Like the Aussie, the kiwi was unable to profit from better-than-expected domestic macroeconomic data.

NZ Dollar Unable to Keep Gains Caused by Chinese Economic Reports

The New Zealand dollar rallied intraday despite underwhelming domestic macroeconomic data. One of the possible reasons for the rally was macroeconomic data in China, which showed that the economic growth of the Asian nation stabilized in the last quarter of 2019. Currently, though, the New Zealand currency has lost its gains versus most rivals, except for European majors. The kiwi was trading about flat against the euro and the Great Britain pound.
