Here's my currency trader's point of view from purely a personal standpoint.... from a technical standpoint only, i.e. from a chart analysis point of view:-

At time of writing we just hit a new high of 2.8477 on this leg of new recent uptrend. The down trend line from the high of 3.7150 to a low of 2.4128 has been broken so we are in a current uptrend.

When the pound ran up vs the NZD to 3.7150 there was a spike low at 2.9166; this will form one area of resistance on this run up; ie potential halting point to the run up. When the GBP then weakened from 3.7150 down to NZD of 2.4128 there was another spike low at 2.8612, which will form another resistance point on the current run up.

The last run down from 3.7150 to 2.4128 yields fibonacci resistance levels at 33.3% of 2.8464(hit today!!!), 38.2% of 2.9102. After that we're talking the 50% retracement being 3.0639!!!

So I will be watching the 2.8464 to 2.9166 area for signs of the NZD strengthening, ie GBP uptrend breakdown, as a possible area to buy a chunk of our NZ dollars on a forward contract(ie lock the rate in).

If it breaks through 2.945 the charts don't look like there's anything stopping the run up to 3.00 at least. I personally will then look to lock in some more of our money around 3.00 on another forward contract.

Remember you can use Forward Contracts with your currency broker(eg Halo, HIFX etc) to lock in a rate if it reaches a level you're happy with so if it does suddenly start heading back down you've protected yourself.

On a cautionary note the daily chart is already looking quite overbought; the relative strength index already in the overbought area of the indicator; doesn't mean it can't go higher but will possibly mean we could see some more consolidation before another leg up.

Remember this is just my technical view; fundamentals are something else....ya never know when the NZ central bank could throw a spanner in the works on interest rates etc etc.

Hope that helps a bit!!!

Dave

Use a good currency broker!!!

I'm using HIFX for our transactions. They have a good reputation, but there are certainly others around.

Imported inflation is still inflation and with the new very generous benefits for working families coming online in April billions will be put into the pockets of young families who will, almost certainly, spend the new money thereby adding further to inflationary pressure.

If The government is not going to use taxation to dampen demand then they will, almost certainly, need to keep interest rates high.

What does this mean? there will come a point probably around 2.85-2.9 where the foreign investors will come back in and in so doing will stop the fall. It was their hot money that caused the over valuation in the first place and so my guess would be for a slight readjustment to circa 2.75-2.8 over the next week or so.

Yes I think you are! pop into your local Inland revenue office or go to their web site for full details I think the max salary is just under $149,000 so most will benefit.

I just looked around on the IRD website and progressed to www.workingforfamilies.govt.nz. I couldn't find any information on elibility related to residency status. However, I recall reading in the package of information that came with the ITA that we couldn't have social benefits until two years had passed. Perhaps that means unemployment payments, welfare and the like. I would be interested to hear what others have found out.
