FXStreet (Bali) - NZD/USD trades on a firmer tone in the early going of the Asian session following the victory of New Zealand's ruling national party, which guarantees a third consecutive term for incumbent NZ Prime Minister John Key.

The NZD was paid as high as 0.8155 in early NZ markets, moving further away from an 8-month low found last Sept 17 at 0.8076.According to Sean Lee, Founder at FXWW, "there do not seem to have been a large number of stops in the interbank market at least, so it looks as if positioning was reasonably light heading into the risk event."
