HiFX Morning Update, November 11, 2017
The NZDUSD opens at 0.6963 (mid-rate) this morning.
The RBNZ left the OCR unchanged at a record low of 1.75% yesterday morning and the NZD/USD rallied 0.6% in the hour following the announcement. The RBNZ is in no rush to raise interest rates and maintains a neutral stance though ‘not firmly neutral’. The RBNZ sees the NZD at fair value, and core inflation would need to pick up to change their current stance.
The NZD/USD has traded a 108 point or 1.57% range this week and begins Friday 16 points or 0.23% from the 0.6979 high set last night.
In the week ending November 4, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial claims was 239,000, an increase of 10,000 from the previous week's unrevised level of 229,000.
