NZD – Double Top at .7400?

NZD – Double Top at .7400?

The kiwi has been a stealth rally since the start of the year but it may be finding tough resistance at the .7400 level. Last night the pair was pushed to a high of .7376 on the back of hotter than expected inflation data, but the days’ reversal should make bulls cautious ahead of the RBNZ announcement tomorrow.

The RBNZ is expected to keep rates on hold, but the market will look for any signs the central bank may be willing to cut rates further. Although inflation is picking up, the recent labor data was disappointing with wage growth particularly weak. On the other hand, the latest Dairy auction saw prices rise suggesting that demand for country’s principal export remains strong.

If the RBNZ is relatively sanguine, the kiwi could make another foray to the .7400 figure, but any move above that level would require further weakness in the buck.
