The Reserve Bank of New Zealand will make a policy statement on August 18 at 05:00 MetaTrader time (GMT+3).
NZD will be driven by RBNZ
What will happen?
The Reserve Bank of New Zealand will hold a meeting on Wednesday, April 14, at 05:00 MT. The central bank will announce its policy decision. Last time, it held its official cash rate at a record low of 0.25% during its February meeting and left the asset purchases unchanged. However, some were expecting the RBNZ to shift to a more hawkish stance – raise rates or decrease asset purchases. Who knows, maybe it will be the case this time.
How to trade on RBNZ’s statement?
- If the RBNZ is hawkish, the NZD will rise.
- If the RBNZ leaves everything unchanged and its tone is optimistic, the NZD may gain.
- If the RBNZ gives negative economic projections, the NZD may drop.

The Federal Reserve (Fed) will announce its Interest Rate Decision and make a statement about the future monetary policy on Wednesday, September 21, GMT+3. After the higher-than-expected inflation numbers published on September 13, there’s almost no doubt the Federal Reserve will come up with another 75-basis-point rate hike. However, surprised by the CPI numbers, several Fed members announced the possibility of a 100-basis-point rate hike on Wednesday.
