[do action=”autoupdate” tag=”NZDUSDUpdate”/]NZD/USD daily chart with support and resistance lines on it. Click to enlarge: Manufacturing Sales: Monday, 22:45. This quarterly release has been negative in the past 3 publication,s with a slide of 0.7% in Q4 2014. The level of sales in the manufacturing sector could advance in Q1 2015. Rate decision: Wednesday, 21:00. This is a tough decision for the Reserve Bank of New Zealand. On one hand, it has released hints that a rate cut could come either in June or in July, and there are economic reasons to do so. On the other hand, it has already received part of the impact it wished for: the value of the currency is significantly lower than it was in the previous decision. Even if the Bank does not cut the interest rate, currently at 3.50%, it may switch from a neutral to a dovish bias. It will be important to note the tone of RBNZ Governor Graeme Wheeler n the accompanying press conference. Business NZ Manufacturing Index: Thursday, 22:30. This PMIM-like survey dropped to 51.8 points in April, reflecting weak growth in the manufacturing sector. A similar number is on the cards now. FPI: Thursday, 22:45. The Food Price Index is important as New Zealand exports food, primarily dairy products. The FPI slid 0.3% in April and has likely ticked up in May.
