The pair continues growing amid weakening in the US Dollar, which remains under pressure due to a fallen probability of monetary policy tightening by the American regulator in the nearest future. In addition, the pair was supported by today’s Reserve Bank of New Zealand President Graeme Wheeler speech in which he noted the effectiveness of pursued monetary policy and suggested it would be reasonable to tighten it in the near term.
This week, extra attention needs to be paid to data on the US GDP that is due on Friday. An expected fall in the index from 1.2% to 1.1% might substantially support the pair.
