Currency news and forecasts for New Zealand Dollar and Australian Dollar

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as the value of a currency must always be quoted relative to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the NZD vs AUD, you should pay attention to both New Zealand Dollar and Australian Dollar news and forecasts.

New Zealand Dollar (NZD) - Market news and forecasts

22-December-18: Of late, the 2019 outlook for the New Zealand dollar has taken a turn for the worse. Late in 2018, traders began to speculate that the next move by the RBNZ (probably still a year away or more) might be a rate cut, rather than a hike. A slowdown in global growth was expected and traders sought safer currencies amid a 20 percent October-December fall in US equity markets. December’s NZ GDP report also came in way below economists’ expectations.

In the weeks leading up to this report, the kiwi lost close to 4 percent of its value against both the US dollar and euro, to respective rates of $0.67 and €0.59, and it lost 5.5 percent against the yen, to ¥74.55. Year-to-date values versus the dollar, euro and yen at the time of writing were -5.4, -0.2 and -6.7 percent respectively.

In December, the team at TradingEconomics.com were forecasting NZD/USD 4.4 percent lower 12 months ahead, at $0.64.

Australian Dollar (AUD) - Market news and forecasts

17-January-19: The Australian dollar recovered strongly following a "flash crash" in early January which saw it briefly trade at a 10-year low of 67.4 US cents.

By the time of this report, AUD/USD was back at 72 cents and roughly in line with December’s median exchange rate. The Aussie was similarly strong against other major currencies following its mini crash.

Several months ago, most analysts agreed that the Aussie was heading higher in 2019, but things have changed. In recent months, investors have become increasingly certain that no increase to Australian interest rates will be seen until 2020; there is, in fact, now a 25 percent chance of an RBA cut, per derivatives pricing. Inaction on interest rates will force capital away from Australia and towards countries where rates are higher or are expected to increase.

One senior researcher at BNP Paribas said in January that the Australian dollar would “get absolutely crucified and could suffer a 25-30 percent [long-term] fall.”

In opposition to that view, at least relative to the US dollar, was a CIBC analyst, who said that at current levels the Aussie was “very undervalued” and was his “best bet” for 2019. The analyst’s view was based upon there being a positive resolution to the US-China trade spat. The Aussie could be worth as much as 78 US cents in the second half of 2019, the analyst said.
