The New Zealand Dollar is trading lower early Wednesday as the U.S. Dollar rose in reaction to news that U.S. trade negotiators will head to China to recommence trade talks. U.S. trade negotiators are planning to head to China for face-to-face talks as the two economic powerhouses try to strike a deal, sources told CNBC.
At 04:23 GMT, the NZD/USD is trading .6696, down 0.0008 or -0.13%.
The U.S. Dollar was also lifted after the Trump administration on Tuesday reached a deal with lawmakers to lift government borrowing limits. Analysts said that the move would increase U.S. borrowing, which would tighten the supply of money in the country’s banking system. This would be supportive for the greenback.
In other news, New Zealand’s June trade surplus was wider than expected as exports were bolstered by logs and imports fell to their lowest level in 16 months.
