    FXStreet (Guatemala) - NZD/USD was mixed after the RBNZ unchanged 2.75% further easing seem likely and a rate cut depends on emerging data flow. Initially the bird jumped on the release as a cut was priced in, but then supply took over again while the RBNZ also jawboned the bird by suggesting the sustained Kiwi dollar rise would require a lower rate path.

    Prior to the announcements, the FOMC came in unexpectedly hawkish and the bird was offered almost a cent lower starting out on the 0.67 handle with bearish pressures below the cluster of turning MA's on the hourly chart.

    The price was in a drift from yesterday's business at the 200 SMA on the same times frames at 0.6772 currently and has been unable to recover ever since, especially with the possibility of a Fed hike before the year is out.
