NZD/GBP Transfer

The New Zealand Dollar (NZD) continues to underperform this week against the British Pound (GBP) falling briefly to 0.4655 (2.1490) Wednesday recovering slightly into Friday to 0.4670 (2.1415). UK CPI turned in sticky rising to 2.0% from 1.9% y/y in June, the Bank of England refraining from talk of cutting rates and will likely hesitate unwinding monetary policy with ongoing inflation pressures. We have already seen the Pound grow from 0.4810 (2.08) levels over the past fortnight, we predict a retest of 0.4630 (2.1585) the multi-year low.

NZD/AUD Transfer

Still no luck for the New Zealand Dollar (NZD) this week as it came into Friday around the weekly open at 0.9020 (1.1090) against the Australian Dollar (AUD). At one point it dipped to a new yearly low at 0.8970 (1.1150). Australian Jobs data came in mixed with the number of employed rising 50k in June with official unemployment rising from 4.0% to 4.1%. With no clear trend to incoming data, it’s becoming harder to get a read on what the RBA may do next, certainly it’s becoming more likely the central bank will raise their interest rate at their 6th August meeting if incoming data doesn’t show a changing economy.

The British Pound (GBP) extended its run Monday off 1.9140 (0.5225) against the Australian Dollar (AUD) to reach 1.9270 (0.5190) this morning a 5-week high. The GBP however could run into selling pressures in the run up to tonight’s UK inflation release as punters unwind long Pound positions. Should Australian jobs numbers come in light tomorrow we could see further speculation by the RBA of a hike at their next meeting- chances are 25% at the moment with inflation not behaving. Heavy support seen at 0.5170 (1.9340) on the chart but we expect prices to reverse back towards the 0.5210 (1.9200) zone.
