Current trend

This week, NZD/USD is trading within a limited price range due to the lack of significant releases.

USD is vulnerable due to the complicated EU-US trade negotiations. On June 1, 25% tax on steel and aluminum, supplied to the US from EU, will be implied. This week, US Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom will meet in Paris to discuss the situation. EU representatives do not agree with new fees and reject to replace them with 90% quota for the import of metals in the US at the level of last year's supply volumes. EU can imply reciprocal taxes on American goods amounting to 2.8 billion EUR, and USD will be under serious pressure.

Today the pair will trade within the range of 0.6900–0.6950 due to the lack of key macroeconomic data. RBNZ Governor Orr Speech is due at 03:10 (GMT+2) tomorrow. At 14:30 (GMT+2), US employment data, GDP and Core Personal Consumption Expenditures releases will be published.
