Forex News: Kiwi Falls As NZ Inflation Expectations Drop Trims

Kiwi Falls As NZ Inflation Expectations Drop Trims Bets On Rate Hike

02/13/2024 - 01:59:00 (RTTNews)

(RTTNews) - The New Zealand dollar weakened against other major currencies in the Asian session on Tuesday, as the nation's easing inflation expectations data in the first quarter trimmed bets among traders for a further Reserve Bank of New Zealand's rate hike.

Data from the RBNZ showed that the New Zealand's one-year ahead inflation expectations dropped to 3.22 percent in the first quarter from 3.60 percent in the previous quarter.

Two-years ahead expectations showed a fall to 2.50 percent, from 2.76 percent in the prior quarter.

Investors also remain cautious ahead of the release of U.S. consumer price inflation data for January, which could have a significant impact on the outlook for interest rates.

In the Asian trading today, the NZ dollar fell to a 6-day low of 1.0694 against the Australian dollar and a 4-day low of 0.6096 against the U.S. dollar, from yesterday's closing quotes of 1.0644 and 0.6131, respectively. If the kiwi extends its downtrend, it is likely to find support around 1.08 against the aussie and 0.59 against the greenback.

Against the yen and the euro, the kiwi dropped to 4-day lows of 91.13 and 1.7653 from Monday's closing quotes of 91.55 and 1.7558, respectively. On the downside, 89.00 against the yen and 1.79 against the euro are seen as the next support levels for the kiwi.

Looking ahead, U.K. unemployment data for December is due to be released at 2:00 am ET in the pre-European session.

Half-an-hour later, Switzerland consumer prices for January is slated for release.

In the European session, Germany's ZEW economic confidence survey results for January are due.

At 5:40 am ET, ECB board member Anneli Tuominen will participate in roundtable high-level discussion at SRB Annual Conference 2024 "The road ahead: risk, readiness and resilience" in Brussels, Belgium.

In the New York session, U.S. CPI data for January and U.S. Redbook report are set to be published.
