What Is AUD/NZD Trading?

AUD/NZD is a cross pair in the forex market. By trading it, investors and traders speculate on the exchange rate fluctuations between the Australian and the New Zealand dollars.

The Australian dollar is legal tender in Australia. It is abbreviated as "AUD" and called the "Aussie." The New Zealand dollar is the official currency of New Zealand. It is abbreviated as "NZD" and called "kiwi." Both currencies are often symbolised by the dollar sign "$" or sometimes as "A$" and "NZ$," respectively, to distinguish them from other dollar-denominated currencies.

AUD/NZD represents the value of one Australian dollar in terms of New Zealand dollars. For example, if the current exchange rate is 1.0800, it means 1 Australian dollar is equivalent to 1.0800 New Zealand dollars.

AUD/NZD Historical Performance

From 2000 until 2015, the pair moved in strong up and downtrends. However, the situation changed in 2015 when it formed a narrow range of 1-1.15. This changed the approach traders took to trading AUD/NZD but still left them numerous opportunities.

Still, within this narrow range, it manages to form considerable swings. Both Australia and New Zealand are major commodity exporters. Fluctuations in commodity prices, particularly dairy products and metals, can significantly impact the currencies of both countries and, consequently, affect the aussie/kiwi exchange rate.

Major Factors That Affect AUD/NZD Rates

Key economic indicators, such as GDP growth, employment figures, inflation rates, and trade balances, from both Australia and New Zealand, can impact market sentiment and influence the AUD/NZD value.

Interest rate decisions by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) and the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) are also important factors to consider when making price forecasts, as they can affect the attractiveness of each currency to investors. Higher interest rates in one country relative to the other may attract foreign investment and strengthen the respective currency.

The aussie and the kiwi are commodity-linked currencies which increases the level of their risk sensitivity. Changes in risk appetite and market sentiment can influence the pair.

As neighbouring countries with significant trade and economic ties, developments in bilateral trade and economic agreements can impact the aussie and the kiwi.
