Current trend

On Tuesday, the US dollar strengthened against the New Zealand one.

The market was focused on US politics’ commentaries. Fed’s head Jerome Powell made a speech at the conference in Switzerland. There was no new information in his commentaries, and he noted that the market had received a signal of Fed’s intention to increase rates long ago, so it should not be surprised with it. However, he mentioned, that the rates would grow if American economy would meet the regulator’s expectations. In the evening, US President Donald Trump announced the withdrawal from the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program, adding that the US will resume sanctions. Trump's decision, however, almost did not affect the strength of USD against NZD.
