New Zealand’s Interest Rate Decision Today! What to focus on & Expect?

RBNZ will announce their interest rate decision today.

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand is expected to leave the interest rate unchanged at its record low of 1.75%, where it has been since November 2016.

However, with the latest inflation data showing inflation rising to 2.2%, analysts are expecting that the central bank will bring forward its previous forecasts for future rate hikes from late 2019.

NZDUSD Technical Chart

On another note, US president Trump surprised the world by firing the FBI director James Comey.

The White House said that the firing is related to Comey’s mishandling of the Clinton investigation, especially in July last year.

Yesterday the US Dollar was rallying without a clear reason. The most recent jobs report was quite mixed and did not necessarily point to a rate hike by the Federal Reserve, nor did the Fed hint for a hike.
