The New Zealand dollar strengthened yesterday against the US one despite a decline by 3.6% in the index for dairy products, one of the key spheres of the country's economy, which can bear adverse consequences.

On Tuesday, investors were focused on the comments of US President Donald Trump, who again expressed dissatisfaction with the monetary policy of the Fed.
