New Zealand Dollar: NZD/USD (NZD=X) direction likely to be determined by trader reaction to the short-term 50% level at .6687
The New Zealand Dollar continues to feel pressure from a Reserve Bank of New Zealand report that showed it is at a “very early stage” in refreshing its “unconventional monetary policy strategy.”
Traders are also awaiting the European Central Bank’s latest monetary policy decision on Thursday at 11:45 GMT and ECB President Mario Draghi’s press conference at 12:30 GMT. The ECB is widely expected to announce further stimulus measures to combat stalling growth in the Euro Zone. Meanwhile, the U.S. Federal Reserve is expected to cut U.S. interest rates by at least 25-basis points on July 31.
The RBNZ cut its official cash rate in May to a record low at 1.5 percent. With the backdrop of lower global rates, investors believe the central bank’s benchmark rate will hit 1.0 percent by year-end.
