Dollar keeps breaking records with rise
The New Zealand dollar has hit a new post-float high of 83.30USc on the back of strong data in Europe and the United States.
New Zealand dollars were recently changing hands for 83.14USc, up from 82.71USc yesterday.
Australian and New Zealand dollars were both strong performers after demand for growth-linked currencies surged following stronger than expected job data from the US.
Moves by the European Central Bank to raise its official interest rate to 1.5%, up from 1.25% also pushed currencies other than the USD higher.
