National Australia Bank: Australian dollar against New Zealand dollar fears further fell below 1.04

The National Australia Bank (NAB) released a research report on Tuesday that pointed out that the recent mid-term action has been reversed and that short positions are re-entered, which is consistent with the long-term bearish momentum indicator. We expect that a further decline in several weeks may be triggered after the weekly close at 1.0665, which will also confirm that a mid-term correction in the overall gains in 2019 has started and the target is likely to look below 1.04.

The exception is when the global oil market is oversupplied (possibly in 2020-21) and the US export arbitrage window is closed to encourage storage in US oil depots. Imports will remain "quite stable" and, in the medium term, shale oil production is expected to increase by about 800,000 barrels per year to 1 million barrels per day.
