At the beginning of the week, the volatility in the NZD/USD pair was very low. Though the USD was trying to strengthen, the NZD managed to more or less hold its positions.
The US dollar got moderate support from Manufacturing PMI statistics. In October, the indicators remained almost unchanged, compared to the previous month, but, nevertheless, came in slightly above the forecasts.
The NZ dollar, at present, lacks support from macroeconomic indicators, but labor market statistics for the third quarter is due on Wednesday in New Zealand.
