NZD RBNZ Interest Rate Decision - 19-08-07

Date Wednesday 7th August 2019
Time 02:00

The RBNZ announce their interest rate decision during the Asian session.

Of the 21 economists surveyed, 18 expect a 25bps cut from 1.50% to 1.25%. The likelihood of a 25bps cut is priced into the market, therefore we will only be looking to trade unchanged or a 50bps cut.

We will be trading NZD/USD. We will be selling the pair on a rate cut to 1%, and buying the pair if the RBNZ remain on hold.
