Westpac weekly markets video
The kiwi has been spellbound by New Zealand political news since Jacinda Ardern became Labour Party leader. In our brief weekly video, I discuss the sharp fall in the kiwi as Ardern was anointed prime minister and the new coalition government's focus on the currency, including an unexpected cameo by Singapore's policy. I also take a look at Australia's impressive jobs data and the key events in the week ahead: Australia's CPI data and the ECB meeting.
