Analysis and Recommendation:

The NZD/USD gained its momentum back after the US declined in Monday's session. The kiwi is trading at 0.8109

It was a sleepy day around the world on Monday, with markets waiting for the FOMC meeting minutes on Wednesday.

The ECB caught trader's attention on rumors of a program to cap bond yields but it was just rumor at present.

Markets are also waiting for Chinese HSBC data due later which will indicate if we will see monetary stimulus from the PBoC.

Data released today in New Zealand showed a drop in credit card spending but also showed a drop in inflation which has been viewed as positive for the kiwi.
