President Donald Trump will be delivering a speech at the Economic Club of New York at 17:00 GMT today. Investors will be hanging on every word, as many things will be discussed. Although the US-China Trade war will be in the focus. Last week’s optimism was quickly reversed by President Donald Trump’s remarks on no agreement on tariff rollback, this speech is likely to be volatile.

Tomorrow morning at 07:00 GMT, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand releases its interest rate decision. The market is expecting (about 60%) a possible rate cut of 0.25%. RBNZ cut rates in August, by an unexpected 50 basis against the forecast of 25bp.
Last week, New Zealand released slightly worse than expected employment numbers. The inflation target QoQ was downgraded to 1.8%. This increases the chance of a rate cut, but we should not forget that trade tensions are hard on NZD as well as they are on the neighboring AUD. They are both sensitive to trade war updates.
