New Zealand consumer prices rose 0.4% in the second quarter and were up 0.4% from a year earlier, Statistics New Zealand said Monday. Economists had expected the consumer prices to rise 0.6% in the quarter and 0.6% from a year earlier.

Some economists said the RBNZ might be considering a cut in the interest rates soon to offset concerns about slowing world growth and an elevated currency. Still, an interest rate cut now might exacerbate tensions around rising house prices and fears of potential financial sector instability.

Considering the overall technical outlook, buying the pair near the mentioned support levels upon emergence of a valid bullish reversal candle appears to be a good strategy in short to medium term.
