NZ dollar NZD forecasts for 2020

Bullish NZ dollar forecasts have all been surpassed with the NZD hitting US71c at year-end.

The NZD had a strong performance in November, up 6% against the USD and also enjoying strong gains against other major counterparts including EUR, AUD and JPY. A shift in risk demand could prompt a correction. NZD could trade between 0.69-0.74 depending on shifting risk sentiment. December Update

The NZD advance was driven by improved global optimism, strong domestic economic conditions, and a shift in monetary policy expectations. With improving business conditions, rising house prices and hopes of a recovery thanks to a vaccine, markets have moved away from an expectation the RBNZ will cut interest rates below 0% in the first quarter of 2021.

This correction has driven NZD gains against the AUD however the pace of further appreciation is expected by OFX to most likely slow through December.

Bullish 2020 year-end NZ dollar forecasts have all been surpassed with the NZD hitting US71c towards the end of December, its highest level against the US dollar since April 2018.

National Australia Bank (NAB) have revised upwards their NZ dollar forecasts now expecting the NZD/USD rate at US73c by June 2022, up from their previous forecast of US71c. For 2020, it saw the NZD at US68c by year-end, up from a predicted US66c however as mentioned above these forecasts have already been proven too conservative.

Risks to the NZD forecasts come in the form of US-China trade tensions (New Zealand has very strong trade links with China) and any subsequent depreciation of the Chinese yuan because of NZD’s high correlations with Asian currencies.
