Current trend

The pair continued to fall and is currently trading near the lows of December 2017.

Yesterday, the instrument showed a slight decrease, despite the negative data on inflation in the US. In April, the consumer price index rose from 2.4% to 2.5% YoY but the base consumer price index, the target for interest rate changes, remained at the same level of 2.1% instead of the expected growth. This statistics, along with the latest mixed data from the US labor market, alarms investors.

However, NZD remains weak against the backdrop of a prudent RBNZ policy. Monetary policy parameters have not changed for a year and a half, and the rate growth, according to the regulator, is possible in Q1 2020.

Today, a moderate influence on a pair may be exerted by the Fed's representative's James Bullard speech. The head of St. Louis Federal Reserve has repeatedly spoken out against a premature rate hike. Given yesterday's weak inflation and labor market indicators, the official's speech is likely to form a short-term pressure on the US currency.
