Why do you think the kiwi spiked like this? I don't understand why a currency moves like this when the cash rate remained the same.

RBNZ status-quo produced a knee-jerk reaction as markets were divided on the outcome. There were some expectations for a 25bps rate cut. More than the interest rate on hold, we feel the statement which lacked a strong dovish bias spooked markets.

Hmm. Ok. The markets are behaving very strangely this week. Technicals not working as they should. The whole thing smells of manipulation. Thx for your quick reply. All the best.
