New Zealand Dollar remains stable despite global uncertainty – What is impacting NZD exchange rates? (Daniel Wright)

The New Zealand Dollar has remained stable over the past 24 hours despite the continuing global uncertainty surrounding China and the global stock market as a whole.

Exchange rates for the Antipodean currencies have been rather volatile of late and I expect this trend to continue in the coming weeks.

The New Zealand Dollar can still be impacted quite considerably by carry trading. Carry trading is the process where an investor borrows money in a currency with a very low interest rate and then shifts the funds through to a currency with a very high interest rate, making a return on the difference. When the NZD starts to drift a little you start to see the revering of positions, known as the unwinding of carry trades. When this happens the NZD tens to weaken off as all of the flow heads out of the NZD.
