The New Zealand dollar was soft today, falling against the majority of its most-traded peers, though managing to gain on some of them. Today’s macroeconomic data in New Zealand did not show a clear picture of the nation’s economic wellbeing, thus failing to support the kiwi.

NZ Dollar Firm on Risk Appetite & Positive Domestic Data

The New Zealand dollar was trading in the green today, rising against the majority of most-traded currencies, except for the Australian dollar and the Great Britain pound.
