On Friday the New Zealander strengthened due to falling oil prices after strong US labour market data. Job creation in the non-agricultural sector was up 287k against a 170k forecast.

May”s NFP was reassessed down from 38k to 11k. April was reassessed to 144k from 123k (last month it was reduced from 215k to 208k). The total reassessment was a reduction by 6k. Unemployment rose by 0.2% to 4.9% (forecasted: 4.8%, previous: 4.7%).
