NZD/USD holding up strongest against the greenback

FXStreet (Guatemala) - NZD/USD is trading at 0.7902, up 0.27% on the day, having posted a daily high at 0.7906 and low at 0.7876.

NZD/USD is stubborn and will not give up the 0.79 handle without a fight. 0.7820 had been under pressure with the greenback taking the lead across the board last week, but the New Zealand dollar has continued to hold up and in fact has been the strongest this month, gaining 1.6% against the US dollar as noted by analysts at Brown Brothers Harriman. “This is most a function of favorable economic news, leaving aside the decline in milk prices, for the domestic economy”.

The week ahead poises plenty of risk news in the US while we are relatively light looking in the New Zealand data front. Straight away in the US session, we kick off with Markit Services PMI and then later in the week we have the US GDP results with markets expecting a downgrade for Q3 and Consumer Confidence which may get things going to start with.
