Is The Decline in The New Zealand Dollar is about to end ?

New Zealand Dollar Technical Analysis Forecast

New Zealand dollar extended its decline to a seven-week low, as growing speculation the Federal Reserve will hike interest rates this month

Reserve Bank Governor Graeme Wheeler said: 
“New Zealand would not fare well in such circumstances. Even if our exports of goods and services to the US – currently over $8 billion – were not directly subject to higher tariffs, we would be hard hit by a downturn in the global economy, including among our main trading partners, in response to the direct and indirect impact of protectionist measures. We would experience lower global demand and weaker commodity prices.
It would not be all good news, however. Longer-term interest rates would rise, reflecting an increase in borrowing by US Government, pulling longer term interest rates here higher too, which would flow into higher mortgage rates”

New Zealand’s trade balance deficit widened to 285 million NZD, worse than expected. The publication took its toll on the kiwi, but the currency eventually recovered, also thanks to an upbeat measure of commodity prices, up 2% as well as better terms of trade, a rise of 5.7%. The US dollar enjoyed optimism about a March rate hike but suffered from the Donald Disillusion. Eventually, the Federal Reserve had the upper hand, and the greenback won over.
Those words reflect the delicate situation for NZD economy – NZD has slipped further after its significant underperformance last week, Breakdown 0.7000 under this morning.  An expected chunky fall in dairy prices in the GDT auction tonight is not helping sentiment.  Falling prices on the NZX futures market has reduced the upside risk to Fonterra’s payout projection we previously saw.  we reduced our forecast milk payout for the current season by 30 cents to $6.10.  Indicators suggesting a weaker housing market are not helping either.
