Analysis and Recommendation:

The NZD/USD continued to fall giving up 8 points to trade near a new low at 0.6464 as the US dollar advanced and the DairyTrade auction disappointed.  Global dairy prices fell for the third consecutive auction, adding to pressure on New Zealand farmers and to the chance that the central bank could cut interest rates at its meeting next month.

The benchmark GlobalDairy Trade price index fell 7.9 percent to $2,345 in the fortnightly auction established by New Zealand dairy exporter Fonterra. The fall came despite slowing New Zealand dairy supply. Earlier this week Fonterra reiterated that it expects milk production to fall at least 5 percent this season. “The low run of dairy prices looks set to consign the dairy sector to another dismal season,” ANZ analysts said in a research note. “Commodity producers will be doing it tough, and this will permeate throughout economies, but let’s not forget the benefits accruing to consumers and downstream users,” the ANZ analysts said.

The central bank last week said struggling farmers facing a second season of weak dairy prices are a growing risk to the economy. The danger of a substantial rise in bad loans in the dairy sector has increased over the past two years due to high debt levels and falling milk prices, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand said in its six-monthly financial stability report. The Reserve Bank of New Zealand is likely to cut interest rates at its next policy review in December, having kept its benchmark rate unchanged in October as widely anticipated.
