GBPNZD Forecast

Over the last few months the GBPNZD has failed to find any real direction. This seems to be due to both currencies being impacted by the US dollar (safe-haven) impact on both currencies.

As a result, there is currently no obvious direction for the pair at the moment. Yes, we could look at a break of the triangle pattern that is currently taking shape, but the break and any subsequent move would preferably be backed up by a clear direction based on fundamental analysis. As we don’t yet have a clear idea of where we think the pair could be headed, we are sitting on the sidelines for now.

GBPNZD Fundamental Analysis

Price moves significantly on a daily basis, especially with major currency pairs such as the GBP/NZD. Economic factors are fundamental in the long-term directional bias of price. Therefore, it is essential to understand the characteristics such as economic activity and monetary policies outlining both the GBP and NZD.

The GBP has faced a plethora of challenges over the last few years, with Brexit causing a significant decline in the pound and disputes emerging over the trade agreement and border controls despite a deal between the UK and the European Union. Furthermore, GBP investors are yet to be convinced of the success of leaving the European Union, and issues remain in the long term. Meanwhile, political instability has also seen the pound tumble, and with inflation soaring, the last 25bps BoE rate rise was not enough in many people’s eyes. The BoE is expected to hike rates by 50bps in August, but concerns over economic growth persist.

The New Zealand Dollar can be considered a stable currency due to the strength of its economy. A key driving force for New Zealand is its tourism. When tourism is doing well, the currency tends to be stronger. Furthermore, due to its high yields, the NZD is considered a carry-trade currency against low-yielding currencies such as the Japanese Yen or Swiss franc. For example, long positions fell significantly in the NZD during the financial crisis as it was one of many high-yielding currencies. Finally, New Zealand is a large exporter of whole milk powder. As a result, if milk prices increase, the New Zealand economy will likely benefit, increasing the strength of the NZD.
