Key Quotes

“Speculative positioning is quite short, so that even if the USD does continue to rise, the NZD/USD response may be muted in the near term.”

“Medium-term though, our view remains negative, resting largely on NZ-US interest rate spread shrinkage persisting into next year.”

“If that proves correct, we should see NZD/USD below 0.67 multi-month.”
