Real time AmpGFX – Still long AUD/NZD, very initial thoughts on RBNZ MPS; Wed 8/9/2017 3:17 PM MST

It appears that I am still long AUD/NZD even though Bloomberg quotes appeared to show it trade below my s/l, Saxobank appeared to have NZD trading turned off. I could not trade AUD/NZD and it also appears that my positions are still current.  This is something that I will discuss with them later.  But my account is still long AUD/NZD. (It may not have been offered below my stop-loss – a condition of my s/l’s)

My very initial thoughts are that the RBNZ have made a clearer statement that they prefer a lower exchange rate and they have not changed their rate forecasts.  They have added an additional hike at the end of the profile, since they have added 3-months onto the horizon.
