No central bank speakers scheduled for Australia or New Zealand today, but we are getting some economic data

New Zealand,

  • due at 2230GMT - Business NZ manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for May, prior was 51.8
  • due at 2245GMT - Food prices for May, prior was -0.3% m/m


  • due at 0130GMT - Credit card purchases and balances for April, prior was $A25.6bn and $A51.5bn respectively

The NZ data might have some impact but the AUD data is lower tier and unlikely to attract to much attention on a Friday!
