NZD Awaits RBNZ Statement

NZD Awaits RBNZ Statement

What will happen?

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand will make a policy statement on August 18 at 05:00 MetaTrader time (GMT+3). The bank will announce its decision on the interest rate and shed a light on its future monetary policy. Last time, the RBNZ held the cash rate at a record low of 0.25% and, more importantly, decided to end the emergency asset purchases by July 23. When the central bank raises rates or reduces asset purchases – it’s good for the currency. As a result, NZD/USD skyrocketed – look a the chart below! After that hawkish move, investors started expecting a rate hike in 2021 and the most optimistic ones – during this meeting in August. However, the rapid spread of the delta variant may ruin these plans. Therefore, the bank may increase rates in the next meetings: October 6 or November 24.

How to trade on the RBNZ Interest Rate Decision?

  • If the RBNZ hints at the rate hike sooner than expected, the NZD will strengthen.
  • On the other hand, negative forecasts and cautiousness around recovery will make the NZD weaker.
