Analysis and Recommendation: (close of the Asian session)

NZD/USD  is trading at 0.8240; the kiwi moved up in early trading but lost its strength, following its cousins, as the markets pushed the USD up preparing for Fed Chairman Bernanke’s address late on Tuesday. NZD GDP is expected this week and might push the kiwi up, if it comes in at or above expectation.

Otherwise it should be a quiet week in the Pacific.
