Current trend

Last Friday, the pair lost more than 50 points after the publication of weak macroeconomic stats from China.

Most investors expected NZD/USD to strengthen due to the progress in trade negotiations between the United States and China. However, on December 14, a strong pressure on the instrument was exerted by a drop in the growth rates of retail sales and industrial production in China.

This week market participants are waiting for the Fed's decision on the interest rate, which will be announced on Wednesday, December 19 at 21:00 (GMT+2). Investors expect more detailed information on the number of increases in 2019.

Today, there are no significant macroeconomic publications from both sides, and the pair will continue to move within the current trend. Tomorrow at 15:30 (GMT+2), data on the construction sector will be published in the United States. At 23:45 (GMT+2), the publication of New Zealand GDP statistics for the 3rd quarter of this year is expected.
