Posted on September 15, 2021 at 11:17 am GMT

NZDUSD is creeping sideways along the 0.7100 level, which happens to be surrounded by the 100- and 200-day simple moving averages (SMAs) at 0.7070 and 0.7120 respectively, after its latest rally ran out of steam.

New Zealand may be mired in lockdown currently but investors have been busy speculating that the country’s central bank will be the first to raise interest rates in a post-pandemic world. With a rate hike fully priced in for October, Thursday’s GDP data for the second quarter (Wednesday, 22:45 GMT) is already seen to be outdated and is not expected to change much about the policy outlook.

Posted on September 14, 2021 at 1:52 pm GMT

Markets and the greenback’s reaction connected to US CPI data Today’s pause on market volatility seems to have been hinged around market jitters prior to the release of the US CPI data, which is somewhat seen as the key that opens the taper door.

Posted on September 10, 2021 at 1:47 pm GMT

US-China relations hit the wires An overnight phone call between the US president Joe Biden and China’s leader Xi Jinping occupied the media on Friday. Not because of the market reaction it caused since that was negligible, but because of the potential positive implications the dialogue could have on the broken US-China trade relations in the future. Although both presidents are focused on managing pandemic headwinds at home, the US trade deficit with China has worsened to fresh highs since the last conversation in [..]

Technical Analysis – NZDUSD keeps positive tone with bounce on 50 MA

Posted on September 9, 2021 at 3:37 pm GMT

That said, the SMAs are promoting upside tendencies in the pair and the bullish crossover of the 200-period SMA by the 100-day one could further fuel positive forces. The short-term oscillators are conveying the message that buyers are pushing to drive the price of the pair higher. The MACD and the red trigger line are a [..]

Posted on September 8, 2021 at 1:52 pm GMT

Markets prepare for Bank of Canada meeting and US Jolts The major US indices have bounced back to earlier Asian levels, while the greenback has given up a tad of its gains, which it extended from yesterday. Renewed lockdowns and travel restrictions are not aiding growth and the persistently roaming delta variant is nourishing uncertainty around global recoveries, interfering with supply chains, which is feeding higher inflation. This seems to be producing a gloomy mood in the markets. The dollar [..]
