    Broad based USD strength pushed NZD/USD to 200-DMA at 0.6622 ahead of Global Dairy Trade (GDT) auction.

    Weak US data ignored

    The pair stays under pressure despite dismal US data release as investors consider a possibility of Fed signaling rate hike this year.

    The immediate focus now is on the GDT auction. Prices at last auction rose 1.4% and thus had put an end to four consecutive weak auctions. Another rise in GDT price index today would bode well for the Kiwi, but scope for a sharp rise is limited, given RBNZ’s dovish forward guidance and caution ahead of tomorrow’s FOMC rate decision.

    NZD/USD Technical Levels

    A break below 0.6622 (200-DMA) would open doors for a drop to 0.66 handle (also 50-DMA). On the other hand, a break above 0.6650 (rising trend line hurdle) could see the spot re-test daily high of 0.6684.
