    A strong NZD, a weak USD

    During the Asian session the kiwi jumped in the market after employment data from New Zealand and receive another boost with declarations from RBNZ Governor, that dampened expectation of another rate cut. The NZD is among the top performers on Wednesday.

After the release of US data Greenback tumbled in the market as Fed rate hike expectations fade and pushed the pair sharply to the upside. Currently is trading at 0.6660/65, up 2.70% for the day so far, having the best performance since October.
