Yesterday the pair showed high volatility but closed at opening levels. However, today the pair started falling despite the publication of quite strong macroeconomic data in New Zealand, where the GDP for the third quarter of the year grew by 0.9%, against a 0.3% growth in the previous quarter.

The pair is under pressure from yesterday’s Fed Interest Rate Decision. As expected, the regulator increased the interest rate from 0.25% to 0.5%. At the same time, Fed Chair Janet Yellen pointed out that monetary policy is going to remain loose for a prolonged time.
