5:00pm (NY Time) RBNZ Interest Rates Decision Forecast 1.75% Previous 1.75%
DEVIATION: 0.25% (BUY NZD 2.00% / SELL NZD 1.50%)

Outlook Score
Outlook score is derived from market sentiment, focus, and economic indicators for the currency. It represents the long-term trend of the currency and its market perception. In short, a strong Outlook Score means more long-term demand for the currency, and a weak Outlook Score is the opposite.

The OCR (Official Cash Rate or RBNZ Interest Rates) influences the price of borrowing money in New Zealand and provides the Reserve Bank with a means of influencing the level of economic activity and inflation. An OCR is a fairly conventional tool by international standards.
