Current trend

On Wednesday, the US celebrated Independence Day, the exchanges were closed, so USD movement was of a technical nature.

This week, the NZD/USD pair has renewed its lows since the end of May 2016, but could not consolidate below the psychological level of 0.6700. Last Monday, the US published negative Prices Paid statistics, which saved the pair from further decline, despite the decline in dairy products prices in New Zealand.

In addition, at 14:30 (GMT+2) US labor market data will be released, and at 15:45 (GMT+2) June Markit PMI releases are expected. Investors are waiting for Friday when the June data on the US labor market and Retail Sales will be published and mutual trade duties on goods produced in China and the US will come into force.
