The Kiwi has been mostly flat from yesterday with markets subdued due to holidays in the UK, and London traders out enjoying a bank holiday Monday for early May.
The US Consumer Credit change data released last night indicated a fall in consumer borrowing by US$2.02 billion from the previous $13.64billion.
But later tonight is the US Federal’s Speech followed by the Australian Budget Release.
