    The Reserve Bank of New Zealand Governor Adrian Orr said on Thursday that he was confident the current official cash rate was restricting demand but it has to stay at the current levels to curb inflation, per Reuters.

    Key quotes

    "We're in a position where we are locked in saying inflation is going to be returning (to the 1%-3% target band) but that is subject to us retaining a restrictive stance with the official cash rate.”

    "Domestically, the economy is behaving as anticipated with interest rates where they are and the terms of trade where they are so spending is subdued and inflation has declined.“

    Market reaction

    NZD/USD extends its downside following Orr’s comments. The pair is currently trading at 0.6090, down 0.12% on the day.
