The main point from ANZ's preview of the RBNZ meeting coming up next week:

We expect the RBNZ to keep the OCR unchanged at 5.5% at next week’s Monetary Policy Review (MPR), while striking a more hawkish tone.

Data since the August Monetary Policy Statement (MPS) has overall been stronger than anticipated, dairy prices aside. Potential wealth effects from the reheating housing market are concerning.

We continue to expect a hike at the November meeting and risks are tilting towards even more being required in 2024.
