FXStreet (Delhi) – Mansoor Mohi-Uddin and Paul Robson, Research Analysts at RBS, note that in its October policy statement, the RBNZ noted that "global dairy prices have risen in recent weeks, contributing to improved household and business sentiment.

Futures markets are pricing circa 9bp of easing.” “While conscious of positioning risks into the meeting, we are sellers of NZD/USD rallies.
