    Key Quotes

    “Nearly all sub components rose, even after extreme market volatility and domestic tax hike talk over the past month. While there is no clear read through from this sentiment indicator for activity, on face value it suggests no significant deterioration in domestic demand.

    Meanwhile NZ Retail card spending rose +0.3% in Jan and Dec was revised up, so a good hand off for Q1.”
