 Kiwi was pushing up against resistance into the data by the 0.6675/90 level.

''Technically, a sustained break above that level puts a move to the September high of 0.6798 into play, and then it’s pretty much blue sky above that,'' analysts at ANZ Bank explained.

''The NZD has done well on crosses, with the USD DXY firming a touch.''
