NZD/USD Transfer

The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) started the week in a positive mood extending gains made last week against the US Dollar (USD) to 0.5980. This wasn’t to last, equity markets started to fall into the red and US consumer confidence showed a pessimistic look, the third month straight. The cross dropped sharply overnight to 0.5890 – over half a cent. To make things worse Tuesday’s local ANZ business outlook gauge also fell to its lowest level since September 2023. NZ jobs numbers just released saw a rise to the unemployment rate to 4.3% from 4.0% in the December quarter. Coming up Thursday morning we have the Fed meeting with no change from 5.5% expected and later US Non-Farm Payroll. With prices down under 0.5900 we are not surprised; further downside bias is predicted.

Current Level: 0.5881
Support: 0.5850
Resistance: 0.6000
Last week’s range: 0.5881- 0.5968
