    FXStreet (Delhi) – Imre Speizer, Senior Markets Strategist at Westpac, notes that the markets slightly increased the chance that the RBNZ will ease by 25bp in December, to 44%, abut a full cut is not priced until with 100% priced not until March 2016.

    Key Quotes

    “We assess the chance of a December at around 60%. The main data to watch ahead of the RBNZ’s December interest rate decision will be the GDT dairy auctions. Further price declines will support a rate cut.”

    “In addition, we’ll be keeping a close eye on the NZD. Earlier in the year, the RBNZ had been banking on a fall in the NZD to generate substantial boost in imported inflation. The September MPS forecast a fall in the TWI from 70.0 to 67.9. However, the TWI has strengthened since then to 73.7, and is currently at 71.3. As a result, tradeables inflation unlikely to rise on the manner the RBNZ’s expects.”
