New Zealand dollar jumps after central bank unexpectedly keeps rates unchanged

The New Zealand dollar surged Wednesday after the country's central bank defied expectations for an interest rate cut, and left policy unchanged. The kiwi dollar jumped 1.1% to 0.6402 U.S. cents. In a statement, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand said at it was leaving the Official Cash Rate at 1% as economic developments since August "do not warrant a change to the already stimulatory monetary policy setting at this time." The central bank slashed its benchmark rate to an all-time low of 1% in August, amid forecasts for tougher economic conditions. Expectations had widely been calling for a cut of 25 basis points, said Ipek Ozkardeskaya, senior market analyst at London Capital Group, in a note to clients. "The RBNZ was the first among the G10 central banks to lower its rates this year faced with the slowing global growth. It may now be the first to pause the monetary easing despite the prospect of a 'subdued' economic growth for the rest of the year," said Ozkardeskaya.
