Different week- same result, in the New Zealand Dollar (NZD), US Dollar (USD) cross with the kiwi slipping again to fresh lows around 0.5930 levels. Well under the 0.6000 support line now it’s hard to see the NZD bouncing back with any gusto. The Reserve Bank of New Zealand confirmed they are happy with the current cash rate at 5.50% which has been constraining spending and inflation pressures. Fed minutes suggested they are hanging off rises in unemployment and slower growth in order to bring down inflation to target levels with a recession now on the cards later this year. On the chart the NZD looks into the abyss all the way to 0.5550.
