Without wishing to spark a war of words, the AUD/NZD chart appears to be turning. Clearly weighed down by a lack of Bledisloe Cup success, the Aussie has slid against the Kiwi for nine months. However, with recent China data showing a pick up in growth and a clearer political landscape in Australia, there is a case to buy AUD/NZD.
