The pair remains near the highs but lost some bullish momentum during the last hour as the US dollar moved off daily lows across the board.The kiwi is among the top performers on Wednesday, ahead of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) decision that will take place at 21:00 GMT. Market consensus points toward no change in rates but some consider possible a rate cut of 25 basis points.“Certainly, the hawkish speech by the Governor in February, followed by the surprise rate cut in March and then the hawkish April OCR review means that anything is possible tomorrow. We err towards a no-cut decision and the Bank maintaining an easing bias”, said analysts from BNZ.NZD/USD levels to watchToday the pair is consolidating above the 0.6970 area, that was an importance resistance. If it continues to hold above, a test of 0.7055 seems possible. The mentioned level capped the upside during April and also in May, becoming a key resistance.
