    Geopolitical, Domestic Events Drive Higher-Risk Currencies Sharply Lower

    The New Zealand Dollar closed sharply lower against the U.S. Dollar last week after the Reserve Bank unexpectedly committed to keep interest rates at record lows through to 2020 on disappointing economic activity. The Reserve Bank of Australia wasn’t as dovish as the RBNZ, nonetheless, the Australian Dollar weakened as the central bank showed no intention of raising rates over the near future. The Dollar/Yen was under pressure last week on trade tensions and on revelations the Bank of Japan is under pressure to move away from its accommodative policy. Geopolitical tensions in Turkey drove the Lira sharply lower, causing investors to dump higher-yielding currencies like the Euro, Australian and New Zealand Dollars. Money then flowed into the safe-haven U.S. Dollar and Japanese Yen.
