GBP/NZD Forecast: Are Pound Sterling to New Zealand Dollar Exchange Rate Gains ahead on BoE Meeting?

 

By Adam Solomon

 

This week, Pound/New Zealand Dollar exchange rate movement may be caused by Confederation of British Industry (CBI) data today and Thursday’s Bank of England (BoE) meeting.

 

In the former case, the CBI’s industrial orders figures might cause a GBP/NZD exchange rate recovery, if they show a forecast-matching rise from -3 points to 2.

 

While this would only be a small positive reading, it would be a step towards the 17-point highs seen in 2017.

 

The more significant BoE event could cause major Pound Sterling gains or losses, depending on the opinions of BoE officials.

 

Policymakers will be meeting to discuss any adjustment to interest rates, but no change is expected from the current 0.5%.

 

More important will be Governor Mark Carney’s speech at a press conference after the rate decision.

 

On the other hand, if the Q1 GDP growth rate figures today show slowing growth, the New Zealand Dollar (NZD) could fall back against Pound Sterling (GBP).

 

Although the NZ economy has impressed in previous years, there are worries that the country is entering a period of slower economic growth.

By Martin Essex, MSTA

 

  • UK Prime Minister Theresa May faces another potentially damaging Brexit vote in Parliament today.
  • The Bank of England will likely keep UK interest rates unchanged this week while an increase in August is far from nailed on.
  • Together, those factors mean a recovery in GBPUSD is unlikely.
