    NZD/USD has extended its rally on the GDP data on 0.67 handle where the bird rallied from 0.6585 lows on the back of the Fed.

    First, the Fed left rates on hold as expected, but delivered a more dovish than anticipated statement, and reduced the dot plot accompanied with dovish language and changes to the statement that draws attention to the concerns from overseas. That was enough to see the greenback fall off a cliff and drag on yields and giving flight to the bird.
