NZD/USD: Bulls tighten grip in Asia, at fresh multi-week highs

FXStreet (Mumbai) - The New Zealand dollar continues to outperform its American counterpart into a fifth straight session on Monday, with NZD/USD reaching fresh five-week highs in the upper band of 0.64 handle.

NZD/USD supported above 50-DMA

Currently, the NZD/USD pair trades 0.42% higher at fresh multi-week highs of 0.6473, storming its way through the 50-DMA located at 0.6430. The Kiwi is currently making fresh highs and aims to breach the key resistance zone around 0.6480-0.6490 region on its way higher beyond 0.65 barrier.

The Kiwi bulls remain in the drivers’ seat as the greenback continues to suffer from poor non-farm payrolls result due out on Friday, which now diminishes chances of the Fed rate hike this year.

While the NZD/USD pair completely shrugged off a subdued outlook on the New Zealand’s economy published by the NZ Treasury earlier on the day. The treasury departed stated that the economy is exposed to downside-risks in the near-term.

Meanwhile, the focus now shifts towards the US ISM non-manufacturing PMI report ahead of the key NZ events due tomorrow.
