NZD/USD: After the storm, what’s next?


The kiwi dollar had a rollercoaster period following the elections. Jacinda Ardern’s ascent to leading the country was accompanied by a big fall in the currency, especially due to the plans to change the RBNZ’s mandate. What’s next? Here are two opinions.

NZD/USD: Relatively Calm After A Busy Political Month; What’s Next? – ING

ING FX Strategy Research discusses NZD outlook noting that after an eventful month, this week provides some relative calm for NZD with only second-tier manufacturing PMI and 3Q PPI inflation data to note (both Fri NZ local time).

“The external environment should remain fairly conducive in the near-term, especially if waning tax reform sentiment continues to weigh on the USD. We see greater risks for a move back above 0.70,’ ING argues.

ING is neutral on NZD/USD around current levels, targeting the pair around 0.70 in 1-month.

    Hi Yohay, Could you please advise me with your expertise for a quick query regarding the NZDUSD pair? I made a silly mistake by placing few long orders @ .69 and .689 with heavy leverage and now I am really struggling to figure out as i am running short of liquidity if I should be fueling the stop losses or cut them loose. This maybe my first and last rookie engagement mistake! Hope I can get out of this. Any suggestions or tips would be helpful and much appreciated. Best regards
