Current trend

The pair is growing amid weakening of the US currency, caused by the release of unsatisfactory macroeconomic statistics in the US.

The decline in the level of consumer inflation had a negative effect on the US dollar rate. The growth of Consumer Price Index Ex Food & Energy slowed down in August, amounting to 2.2%, with a forecast of 2.4% YoY, and 0.1% with a forecast of 0.2% MoM, respectively. NZD was also supported by the growth of the Business NZ PMI: the index rose to 52.0 points in August.

The key event today will be the publication of data on retail sales in the United States (14:30 GMT+2). The market is expected to be highly volatile.
