Yellen’s speech: three important points – Nomura

While Yellen’s speech disappointed those hoping for a catalyst to end the week on Friday, NZD/USD has started the week out in a continuation of the recent, yet, minor correction of the downtrend from the 0.73 handle.  “Support around 0.7180 remains critical for determining whether further pushes lower in this cross are going to transpire,” explained analysts at ANZ who said that this would be their bias over time. “But with the USD starting the week on the back foot once again, and it being reasonably quiet on the data front, we doubt we’ll see support tested today,” the analysts added.

The week ahead: key events for the forthcoming week – Nomura

This week is light on data for the NZ economy, but markets will be looking ahead to the nonfarm payrolls event on the US calendar instead. Analysts at Nomura expect strong nonfarm payroll job gains to have continued in August with the unemployment rate unchanged.
