EURNZD Fundamental Factors
Price popped higher upon hearing the RBNZ’s dovish remarks, hinting that another rate cut is in the cards for December. The central bank kept interest rates on hold at 2.75% in this week’s statement but cited that it’s too early to tell if the recent economic improvements can be sustained.
However, the ECB is also in the dovish camp since Governor Draghi admitted that they’re already looking at a range of policy tools to employ in case further easing is warranted. Data from the region has been mostly disappointing, particularly those coming from its top economy, Germany.
For today, German and Spanish preliminary CPI readings are lined up. Disappointing results could lead traders to speculate about another negative inflation reading for the region, stoking expectations of additional ECB easing.
