    AUD/NZD is currently trading at 1.0635 with a high of 1.0688 and a low of 1.0631.

    AUD/NZD is remains in a bearish trend and lost the 1.07 handle in recent sessions scoring a low of 1.0589 on a short-lived dip below the 1.06 handle as the bird gathers pace vs the greenback.

    Today we have New Zealand business PMI and Aussie consumer inflation expectations. While tomorrow, Stevens will testify and grab the markets attention looking for whether he sees a rate cut this year or whether the global headwinds will tail off and allow the Aussie economy to continue growing towards the RBA meeting their inflation targets.
