NZD/USD update

 It was a more subdued session for the Kiwi on Friday and in Asia today, but looking ahead, this is a big week with the current account data and the PREFU on Wednesday.

 Gross Domestic Product data is out on Thursday.

GDP data will be the worst on record, but it won’t be as bad as first thought and we expect the current account deficit to narrow. It’s all mostly technical but the Kiwi is looking for good news at the moment,
