Good Day… And a Tub Thumpin’ Thursday to you! We had some stuff going on yesterday that moved the markets, and there’s more in store for today, as the European Central Bank (ECB) is meeting while I write!

Front and Center this morning, The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) surprised the markets with a 25 Basis Points rate cut last night. I told you going into yesterday that the call to cut rates or not was 50/50, and that the recent kiwi strength was not going to make RBNZ Gov. Wheeler very happy…
