Current trend

Today, the pair showed a moderate decline against the backdrop of the RBNZ decision on monetary policy.

The New Zealand regulator left the interest rate at the level of 1.75% as expected. At the same time, comments on monetary policy were extremely cautious, which disappointed investors. The RBNZ is interested in a low exchange rate of NZD in order to maintain demand for exports. This measure is aimed at mitigating the consequences of the US-China trade conflict.

Yesterday, the Fed announced the increase in the interest rate by 25 basis points, which was expected by the market. USD strengthening was limited as a number of financiers saw signs of overheating of the American economy. In this regard, investors are expecting today's speech of the Fed head Powell.

Today, a number of significant macroeconomic releases are expected, the publication of which will create volatility in the market. At 14:30 (GMT+2), data on GDP, as well as statistics on personal spending will be published in the US. The speech by the Fed Head Jerome Powell is due at 22:30 (GMT+2).
