The threat of proxy war between the US and Iran in Iraq has pared back some of the gains the Kiwi had made coming into the New Year.

In December the New Zealand dollar has climbed back to US$0.66 it's highest value since July.

Against the Australian dollar, jumped to A$0.96 after being as low as A$0.92 in early November before starting a strong recovery upto current levels above A$0.95.

Robbing New Zealand's currency of better gains in 2019 have been reduced risk appetite spurred on by an escalation in the US-China trade standoff, and high correlations with other weak currencies, including the Australian dollar and yuan.

NZD forecasts

Citigroup analysts said in June that the RBNZ will likely be a policy follower (if other central banks cut or threaten to cut rates, they will too) with the intent of keeping kiwi exchange rates at competitive levels for NZ businesses.

In 3 months’ time, Citi expects NZD/AUD, NZD/USD and NZD/EUR at A$0.955, $0.66 and €0.59 respectively.

Risks to the above 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.
