Kiwi bulls made pips rain on Friday after taking a chill pill for most of last week.

Will we see a livelier price action this week?

Here are catalysts you need to pay attention to if you’re trading the comdoll:

Business confidence reports

  • Traders pay attention to business sentiment reports because the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) considers them in its policy announcements
  • NZIER business confidence (July 6, Asian session) is seen “improving” from -70% to -60% in Q2 2020
  • ANZ business confidence (July 9, 1:00 am GMT) worsened from -33.0 to -34.4 in May

Market risk sentiment

  • Coronavirus cases, death rates, and their impact on the reopening of economies will continue to affect market risk appetite
  • Vaccine and stimulus headlines will also influence the prices of high-yielding currencies like NZD
  • There are only one or two top-tier reports on tap so it’s likely that risk sentiment will drive the comdolls’ intraweek trends (or ranges)
