“Separately, the manufacturing sector expanded in October but is losing momentum. The index fell to 53.3 from 55 in September as the economy continues to adjust to a new environment of persistently low commodity prices and weaker global demand.”

“Overall, the data were mixed and didn’t allow NZD/USD to pick up a clear direction. The Kiwi is trading closely to the key level standing at 0.6567 (Fib. 50% on September-October 2015). On the downside, the level at 0.6489 (Fib. 61.8%) will continue to support the pair in the absence of significant news.”
