NZDUSD trades 0.42% lower at 0.6308 after the optimism around trade talks between the two biggest economies fades away. Last week, New Zealand’s manufacturing PMI in September came in unchanged in August at 48.4. NZDUSD felt pressure after RBA cut interest rates and investors increase bets that RBNZ will follow. RBNZ, in its last monetary policy committee, left interest rates unchanged at 1% as expected by markets. The central bank noted that the risks are to the downside amid trade tensions, geopolitical turbulence and low business confidence.
