NZD/USD: rebound from the support level of 0.7165

5 September 2017, 13:37

After yesterday, marked by sluggish dynamics and low volumes, today we see an increase in volatility and the resumption of a decline in the US dollar.

The continuing tension in the Asia-Pacific region continues to stimulate purchases of assets-shelters, such as gold, yen, and franc.

There is also an increase in the prices of oil and other commodities, along with which the quotations of commodity currencies are growing.

The New Zealand dollar is also growing today against the US dollar, despite a number of fundamental factors. This is the continuing commitment of the RBNZ to conducting soft monetary policy, the uncertainty surrounding the elections in New Zealand scheduled for September 23, geopolitical tensions in the region due to the continuing provocations by North Korea against the US and Japan.

For a stable recovery in the New Zealand economy and rising inflation, "a lower New Zealand dollar rate is needed", the RBNZ said recently.

We are waiting for today data from the auction of dairy products, the publication of which is scheduled for the period after 14:00 (GMT). The price index for dairy products, prepared by Global Dairy Trade, came out last time with a value of -0.4%. If the prices for milk powder decrease again, it will have a negative impact on the New Zealand dollar.
