NZDUSD backtracks as economic debacle looms.
“Kiwi slipped as domestic economic data disappoints while risk adverse sentiment makes a comeback.”
Kiwi undergoes substantial pullback as recent economic data shows economic vulnerability. According to reports, Unemployment rate rose from 3.2% to 3.3% while Employment Change for second quarter comes in at 0%. Evidently, recent data shows bleak economic outlook, which may create more conundrum for Reserve Bank of New Zealand in terms of policy adjustments. On the other hand, greenback extended gains from the downside following escalating tension in between US and China over former’s visit to Taiwan.
