    New Zealand dollar market update


    The New Zealand dollar (NZD) has experienced a period of volatility despite the positive news of the country exiting a recession, with the economy expanding by 0.2% in the first quarter of 2024. The NZD remains under pressure due to declining consumer sentiment, which has dampened its gains. However, the currency has outperformed most major currencies as US treasury yields fall and concerns grow over a potential Federal Reserve interest rate cut, placing the NZD in a relatively strong position compared to its peers.

    Despite a sluggish local economic performance, persistent price pressures and a neutral policy stance from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) have supported the NZD's performance. The RBNZ's focus on bringing inflation back to target has contributed to the currency's strength, and market expectations suggest that rates will likely remain on hold throughout the second half of 2024. Looking ahead, central bank policy expectations, particularly from the Federal Reserve, will be crucial in shaping near-term direction for the NZD. As long as there are no significant shifts in economic data or US yield performance, the NZD is expected to maintain its strength above the US$0.62 level.
