Mike had the headlines here: Kiwi under pressure again as GDT auction sees prices tumble

If you’re just waking up :

  • The overnight global dairy trade auction saw an overall fall of -8.4% in US dollar terms
  • Whole Milk Powder was down 11.5% (from just three weeks ago)
  • Other products fell also
  • Down around 40% since the start of 2014
  • Prices are now the lowest since October 2012

After the previous auction, Fonterra announce milk pay-out price of NZ$6/kg (and more here)

NZD/USD, resistance initially 0.8475 , then 0.8490/95 0.8525/30 and 0.8555.

Support … around 0.8400 was the low in early June, maybe something around there?

Next up from NZ is the jobs report
