New Zealand Food Prices Hit a 13-year High

9/13/2022 2:35 PM

Against the backdrop of the correction of the US dollar, the NZD/USD pair is demonstrating an upward trend, trading around 0.6140.

Today, Statistics New Zealand (Stats NZ) released a report on food prices, which rose 8.3% in August, reflecting the biggest correction since July 2009. Most of all, vegetables and fruits went up in price, adding 15%, the cost of grocery sets increased by 8.7%, fish and poultry – by 7.6%, restaurant dishes – by 6.5%, and prices for soft drinks rose by 4.1%. %. The negative dynamics are primarily due to disruptions in supply chains caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the development of the energy crisis, and the rise in the cost of transport services. Thus, inflation in August exceeded the previous month by 1.1%, confirming the slowdown in the national economy.

The US currency fell below 108.000 in the USD Index. Markets are awaiting the publication of data on consumer prices in the US for August: analysts suggest that the dynamics will be negative at –0.1% MoM and slow down to 8.1% YoY from 8.5% earlier. However, the Core figure, which excludes fuel and food prices, could rise by 0.3% MoM, reflected in an increase to 6.1% YoY from 5.9% a month earlier.

The trading instrument is moving within the global downtrend, away from the year's low. Technical indicators maintain a weakening sell signal: fast EMAs on the Alligator indicator are below the signal line, and the AO oscillator histogram forms upward bars in the sell zone.

Resistance levels: 0.6194, 0.6330. | Support levels: 0.6096, 0.6000.
