U.S. ISM Services PMI News
The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) anticipates releasing numbers for the U.S. ISM Services PMI news on April 05, 2021. According to economists’ estimates, the ISM Services PMI might register a reading of 57.4 in March, as compared to the reading of 55.3, in the month before.
The ISM Services PMI reflects business conditions in the non-manufacturing sector of the United States over the given period. It is worth noting that the ISM Services PMI does not affect the country’s GDP much as compared to the manufacturing PMI. Generally speaking, a reading above 50 strengthens the U.S. Dollar (USD) and suggests a bearish trend for the NZDUSD pair and vice versa.
Given the macro-economic outlook of the pair over the past few days, selling the pair around 0.7050 might be a worthwhile trading decision in the short term.
