During the early Asian trading hours, the Reserve bank of New Zealand surprisingly cut its interest rate from 1.75% to 1.5%. According to the words by the RBNZ Governor Adrian Orr, the bank is currently uncertain about the future path of the interest rates. One of the main reasons behind these uncertainties lie in the US-China trade war and lower figures for business sentiment and consumer spending.
