NZD/USD sits at 3-week tops ahead of GDT, RBNZ

The NZD/USD pair kicked-off the week on a firmer footing, extending gains into a second week this Monday, as the post-NZ Q4 GDP correction picks-up pace ahead of the NZ GDT price index data and RBNZ cash rate decision due later this week.

However, further upside appears to lack follow-through, as the greenback attempts minor-recovery against its major peers, while weaker oil prices also limits the gains in the Kiwi. Later today, the USD price-action will continue to drive markets amid a lack of fresh economic data lined up for release in the NA session.
