On Friday, a tough set of data hammered the US yield and the US dollar, supporting commodities and proxy currencies such as the AUD, CAD, and NZD.

Consumer sentiment in the US dropped sharply in early August to its lowest level in over a decade.

As the largest drop in the survey’s history, this decline was the sixth-largest of the past 50 years, with the dollar index DXY declining 0.4% to 92.523, its lowest level since August 6.

As traders await the RBNZ’s interest rate decision this week, the NZD/USD pair is moving towards recent highs.

Analysts at ANZ Bank warned that if the RBNZ hikes interest rates this week, markets will likely be volatile. The rate hike expectation seems to be split 80/20 between a 25bp hike and a 50bp increase.

Other than downward sloping RSI and the momentum line, NZD/USD also sold because of the downbeat numbers from the key customer.

Despite the current weakness, the 200-SMA level of 0.6995 will fight back any further downside. The ascending support line from July 28 may be retested around the 0.7000 threshold.
