Data released earlier today showed New Zealand economy added 38,000 jobs in the March quarter, the largest increase in 12 years.
The Kiwi spiked to hit 0.6940, but quickly reversed upside as broadbased rebound in the greenback overshadowed stronger than expected NZ employment change numbers.
Renewed optimism towards the US dollar combined with falling dairy prices also weighed down on the NZD/USD pair.
Prices fell 1.4% in the latest Global Dairy Trade (GDT) auction following a 3.8% gain previously.
NZD/USD trades with a downside bias for the day, with immediate resistance at 0.69 and support at 0.6836 ( Apr 25th lows).
Focus now shifts towards the US employment data due later today ahead of the Chinese Caixin Services PMI due for release tomorrow.
Good to sell rallies around 0.6895/0.69, SL: 0.6950, TP: 0.6840/0.68
