NZD/USD Transfer

The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) initially did a good job of shrugging off softer than expected growth yesterday but has suffered losses in overnight NY trading dropping to 0.6040 from 0.6100 against the US Dollar (USD). NZ GDP for the March quarter printed at -0.1% after 0.1% was predicted putting the NZ economy in a formal recession after a negative read of -0.3% in the December 2023 quarter. Earlier the Federal Reserve kept interest rates unchanged at 5.50% with markets getting what they wanted with 3 rate cuts in 2024, Powell saying inflation is on a bumpy road back to 2.0% with the January 2025 forecast being revised up. The kiwi may drop further and retest key 0.6000 support our view.

The current interbank midrate is: NZDUSD 0.6046

The interbank range this week has been: NZDUSD 0.6017- 0.6106
