The forecast is slightly weaker, but if the actual data is greater than the forecast, the index will go further up. Up to now, it has been trading near $95.25. Positive economic data will pull it to $95.40. Otherwise, the index will keep trading near $95.30.

Up to now, NZD/USD has been trading near 0.6650. If the USD is stronger today, the pair will go further down. The next support is at 0.6580. Otherwise, the pair keeps trading near 0.6650.
