    FXStreet (Córdoba) - NZD/USD has resumed the decline on Wednesday with the kiwi as one of the worst performers ahead of the Fed and the RBNZ policy decisions.

    NZD/USD lost nearly 80 pips throughout the day and is challenging the 0.6700 support area as investors await central banks’ verdicts. While the Fed is expected to remain on hold, analysts are split on whether the RBNZ will ease its policy further. The RBNZ has already cut its key interest rate 3 times since June, from 3.5% to current 2.75% to combat the effects on the real economy of the slump in key export prices, and to weaken the NZD.

    At time of writing, NZD/USD is trading at 0.6707, down 0.81% on the day, and having scored a low of 0.6702 so far.
