NZD/USD Weekly Fundamental Analysis, July 27 – July 31, 2015 Forecast

Weekly Analysis and Recommendations: The NZD/USD closed higher last week after the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) cut interest rates by only 25 basis points rather than the 50 bp some traders and analysts had forecast. The Forex pair did not follow-through to the downside, leaving the low from the previous week at .6497 intact. Additionally, this move may have singled a short-term shift in momentum after the market had closed lower 12 out of 14 weeks.  The RBNZ...

NZD/USD Weekly Fundamental Analysis, July 20 – July 24, 2015 Forecast

Weekly Analysis and Recommendations: The NZD/USD is in a freefall. The catalysts behind the selling pressure are falling dairy prices, expectations of a rate cut by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, and the possibility of a rate hike by the U.S. Federal Reserve. The 40 percent decline in dairy prices since the start of March has traders wondering how much impact this would have on the country’s GDP as well as on the income of farmers. It has also...

NZD/USD Weekly Fundamental Analysis – June 29 – July 3, 2015 – Forecast

Weekly Analysis and Recommendation:  The NZD/USD closed the week at 0.6843 falling farther on Friday as traders turned their backs on the commodity currencies and the strength of the US dollar.  The Reserve Bank reiterated that the local currency is at "unjustifiable and unsustainable levels", conditions that need to be met for it to intervene in the foreign exchange market. Headwinds to economic growth include a softening in the Chinese and Australian economies, a sharp fall in dairy incomes and...

Reports this week are projected to show...

NZD/USD Weekly Fundamental Analysis, May 25-29, 2015 – Forecast

Weekly Analysis and Recommendation: The NZD/USD tumbled to trade at 0.7313 seeing a huge decline late on Friday as the US dollar regained its footing.  While the Fed has all but ruled out a rate hike for its next meeting in June, the data makes a move in the next few meetings more likely.

Weekly Analysis and Recommendation: The NZD/USD dipped 26 points to 0.7474 after trading above 75 this week. The US dollar weakened most of the week, while a lack of stimulus from China weighed on the commodity currency as traders had been pushing up prices on expectations.  The New Zealand economy is overly reliant on "milk, houses and disaster" and will see a significant slowdown in economic growth rates in the near future as recent one-off stimulus wear off, said Labour...

NZD/USD Weekly Fundamental Analysis, April 19 – 24, 2015 – Forecast

Weekly Analysis and Recommendation: The NZD/USD had an awkward week with diary prices falling, intervention from the central bank and lackluster Chinese data to close at 0.7688 gaining on the weakness of the US dollar.  The greenback had rallied by as much as 30 per cent since May last year, hitting 12-year highs in March and getting close to them again last week as investors bet the Fed would start hiking rates as early as June. But as economic data...

NZD/USD Weekly Fundamental Analysis, March 30 – April 3, 2015 – Forecast

Weekly Analysis and Recommendation: The NZD/USD closed the week at 0.7564 climbing a bit off its lows after warning from the reserve bank. A drop in dairy prices also weighed on the currency but the weak US dollar and a shift in commodity currencies helped the kiwi to revive.

NZD/USD Weekly Fundamental Analysis, March 9-13, 2015 – Forecast

Weekly Analysis and Recommendation:  The NZD/USD plunged 121 points to trade at 0.7362 after the US dollar soared and the Chinese downgraded growth.  Despite poor weather that appears to have effected other February data, the US jobs report is stronger than expected.  The economy grew 295k net new jobs, nearly all accounted for by the private sector (+288k).  Some of the other details were not as impressive, but should be sufficient to boost confidence that the Federal Reserve drops the...
