New Zealand Dollar is Falling

Like other major currencies, the New Zealand dollar is under pressure from the strong US dollar. This development comes after the Federal Reserve’s updated forecasts last week. Stock market expectations point to only one interest rate cut this year, most likely in December.

Earlier, some American monetary policymakers confirmed these expectations, calling them reasonable.

The New Zealand services sector experienced a significant downturn in May, dropping the indicator to its lowest value since 2007. This reflects the country’s economic state, which is already in recession. The business activity index also decreased to 43.0 points from 46.6 points previously. Everything below the 50.0-point mark indicates a deterioration in the market situation.

Such data increases the likelihood that the Reserve Bank of New Zealand will decide to cut rates eventually. The main forecast is November. However, the RBNZ’s position, which has been voiced repeatedly, is that in 2024, the rates are unlikely to be revised down. The Central Bank believes that any reduction is not likely before mid-2025.
