The RBNZ announced earlier it had added in debt serviceability restrictions to the list of potential tools available.
  • JPY is flat, data showed the trade deficit widened more than expected, exports rose below consensus while imports beat forecasts. Core machinery orders rose below consensus and a sharp drop in the pace of increase from last month.
