This is a chart showing the change in the NZD-USD mid-market exchange rate over the last week. The Total Cost of each foreign transfer in the above table is calculated as the sum of all fees and the exchange rate margin, which is the difference between the provider's exchange rate and the mid-market NZD-USD exchange rate.

Currency news and forecasts for New Zealand Dollar and United States Dollar

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency must always be quoted in comparison to a second currency.

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

New Zealand Dollar (NZD) - Market news and forecasts

26-February-19: The New Zealand dollar has been among the best performers in early 2019: at the time of writing, it was showing a 3 percent year-to-date gain versus the US dollar (US$0.69), bettered within G10 FX only by the Canadian dollar and pound.

The kiwi’s upside might be limited over the coming 6-12 months due to a somewhat disappointing outlook for interest rates in New Zealand.

In February, the RBNZ said it would maintain rates at current levels this year and next, which was taken as a big positive at the time since a rate cut had partly been priced in. When considered against the hikes that are likely in Canada, the US, Europe, Scandinavia and many emerging market economies, steady NZ rates might also be to NZD's detriment.

In February, Radobank predicted NZD/USD 4 percent lower at US$0.66 before the end of May.

An RBC analyst also suggested betting against the kiwi. The analyst pointed to the RBNZ's previous form when it comes to U-turns on policy guidance.

In addition, watchers of NZD should not underestimate how highly correlated the currency is with the Australian dollar, which is tied to an even worse monetary policy outlook and which might suffer an 8-10 percent decline this year, per some currency forecasters.

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

The US dollar had been falling steadily in the lead-up to the March-20 Fed meeting, and those that were selling the currency amid speculation of a dovish surprise were entirely vindicated after the central bank ditched its December projection for two 2019 interest rate hikes and said it now sees rates unchanged until 2020.

The extent of the Fed’s dovish turn meant that the dollar suffered a rapid and significant correction. The euro leapt on the new projections to a 6-week high against the dollar of $1.145 and other major and emerging market currencies followed suit.

The Fed’s reassessment of future monetary policy reflects concerns over domestic and global economic growth, as well as inflation and risks originating overseas, likely including Brexit.

Earlier this year, ING said the dollar would soon “embark on a gradual long-term bearish trend.”

CIBC said: “A slowdown in the economy is likely to weigh on USD particularly in the second half of this year.”
