Default Weekly Currency Update GBP/NZD - Week ending 12th March

Hi All,

As promised here’s a brief update on what’s been happening with the NZ Dollar over the last week.

Manufacturing Sales (ex-inflation +3.1%) rose in Q4 2009 by the most since Q3 2002, as 11 of the 15 industries surveyed recorded gains. Meat and dairy led the way buoyed by increased demand from Australia, which is New Zealand’s largest export market, and a weaker NZD exchange rate that is underpinning confidence among exporters.

Improving construction and manufacturing sectors look likely to drive Q4 GDP higher from the lacklustre +0.2% gains seen in Q2 and Q3 2009. Business NZ Manufacturing Index (53.3 from 52.0) supported the more optimistic outlook, recording its 6th straight monthly increase and the highest level since November 2007. The encouraging manufacturing data left the RBNZ unmoved as they kept interest rates on hold at 2.5% last week, with prospects for the first increase in the cycle remaining for June.

Governor Bollard also coached market analysts that the ‘neutral’ level for rates may be significantly lower than previous estimations of 5.5- 6%.

Whilst FX isn't the most thrilling of subjects, the sooner you begin to think about your money transfers, the more likely you are to make your money go further.
