NZD/USD crept higher Tuesday amid broader weakness in the USD. That said, the rate gave away some gains as risk appetite soured in U.S. hours. It has a look above Monday's high, but failed to consolidate there.

  • GDT price index & whole milk powder price index both fell just 0.2% in the latest auction. It was the fourth auction which saw the index remain little changed.
  • New Zealand's Auditor-General said hat his Office is worried about the pace of national Covid-19 vaccine rollout, which may take longer than planned.
  • New Zealand's quarterly PPI comes out shortly, with credit card spending due Friday. As we mentioned before, Thursday's delivery of 2021 Budget provides the main point of note on this week's calendar.
