    HI All,
    Targets hit with AUDNZD breaking 1.04 on Friday. Time to move to the sidelines.

    NZs largest trading partner is Australia, the 2nd is China. I think this trade is great in the very short term... until the September elections. Immigration and world no.1 over priced housing market are issues that are swaying politics and will disrupt their long growth run. Keep in mind, the only difference between Oz and NZ is their major export products which make up roughly 10% of their respective economies. House prices in both markets are coming off a 10 year streak of irrationality. Who knows how the currency cross will fluctuate as their housing and retail markets experience their biggest correction, ever.

    Great video. Anyone can help with the idea of Long EUR/USD as part of Long Treasuries/Bunds ?

    Agree with NZD/AUD. Yesterday Fonterra raised milk payout forecast. Immigration at near record highs for NZ. Trade surpluses growing. RBNZ may have to raise OCR earlier than economists anticipate. By contrast Australia facing slow down in hard commodities and housing slowdown/ bust - Australia has surplus of apartments vs. NZ's deficit of housing (due in part to immigration surge). Anecdotally there is a large difference between retail sector downgrades/ upgrades. NZD, whilst strong, may go higher. Never been through parity with AUD since its 1980's float but it could get close again (or possibly even breach).
