The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) came roaring back this week against the British Pound (GBP) from 0.4795 (2.0860) to reach 0.4850 (2.0630) regaining last week’s momentum as risk flow improved. UK labour market data came in mixed with unemployment rising to 4.4% from 4.3% the highest number since Oct 2021 while the number of paid payroll numbers declined 3,000 after 36,000 fell in April. We have a busy week of economic data next week with UK CPI y/y, Bank of England Cash Rate and NZ GDP to digest. Resistance on the chart in the pair is 0.4855 (2.0600) the 28 Feb high- a break past here would suggest further upside for the kiwi.

NZD/USD Transfer

Risk on flow this week overall has supported the New Zealand Dollar (NZD) rising across the board, to 0.6220 against the US Dollar (USD). US CPI came in soft at 3.3% compared to 3.4% predicted before the Federal Reserve meeting. The Fed kept held their benchmark interest rate at 5.50% as widely expected with the central bank now only pencilling in 1 cut this year. 15 of 19 Fed officials expect the Fed to cut just once this year compared to 6 cuts forecast in early May. Friday action has seen prices fall back to around 0.6165 stalling out on hawkish fed speak over the past day. Next week’s NZ GDP for the first quarter of 2024 should reflect a negative number as the NZ economy struggles in a recession.

The NZD still well supported on dips in the run up to 0.9320 however with Aussie job numbers printing better than expected we have seen more buying of the AUD over the past day or so. Any chance we had of the RBA cutting rates this year is now a pipe dream with the unemployment dipping slightly from 4.1% to 4.0% in May the Australian economy showing reliance. Next week’s RBA cash rate will remain at 4.35%- a non-event. Technically we pick the cross to retest the fib area at 0.9260 (1.0800) early next week.
