    NZDUSD Rate Eyes 2019 Low Ahead of RBNZ Meeting

    Abstract:NZDUSD approaches the 2019-low (0.6269) ahead of the RBNZ meeting, but there appears to be a divergence between price and the RSI as the oscillator holds above 30.

      New Zealand Dollar Talking Points

      NZDUSD approaches the 2019-low (0.6269) ahead of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) meeting, but recent developments in the Relative Strength Index (RSI) keeps the monthly range on the radar as the oscillator struggles to push into oversold territory.

      NZDUSD Rate Eyes 2019 Low Ahead of RBNZ Meeting

      NZDUSD slips to a fresh weekly low (0.6298) even though New Zealands Gross Domestic Product (GDP) report beats market expectations, and the current environment may continue to drag on the exchange rate as the Federal Reserve appears to be in no rush to reverse the four rate-hikes from 2018.

      It remains to be seen if the RBNZ will make a major announcement at its next meeting on September 24 as the central bank is expected to keep the official cash rate (OCR) at the record-low of 1.00%, and Governor Adrian Orr and Co. may move to the sidelines after delivering a 50bp rate cut in August as “the larger initial monetary stimulus would best ensure the Committee continues to meet its inflation and employment objectives.”

      In turn, the RBNZ may endorse a wait-and-see approach over the remainder of the year, but the weakening outlook for the Asia/Pacific region may push the central bank to further insulate the New Zealand economy as the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) cuts its 2019 global growth forecast to 2.9% from an initial projection of 3.2%.

      With that said, the RBNZ may keep the door open to implement lower interest rates, and a dovish forward guidance may produce headwinds for the New Zealand Dollar as New Zealands Treasury Department states that “the limit of the OCR, before corporate bond rates reach zero, is between -0.2% and -0.35%.”
