This week, the cross managed to get above this level. The cross has been edging higher for 3 consecutive days ahead of major events.
Across the board the commodity space is the worst performing this year. A fall in milk prices depressed the kiwi. Most economists expect another rate cut by RBNZ. We can expect another 25bps rate cut to 3.0%.
