“However, it is too early to say whether these recent improvements will be sustained." The last three weak dairy auctions are important in that context; with just one more auction to come before the December 9 policy meeting. Futures markets are pricing circa 9bp of easing.”

“While conscious of positioning risks into the meeting, we are sellers of NZD/USD rallies. The extent of any NZD weakness will depend on whether RBNZ expresses concern about slower growth abroad, most obviously in China and East Asia. While we expect a dovish tone from the RBNZ, it may not be aggressive enough to see the currency weaken significantly.”
