The pair is extending rebound from 2021 lows hit last week, scope for further upside.
Kiwi bulls cheer upbeat China inflation figures, however, risk-off mood seems to keep upside limited.

Further, the Producer Price Index (PPI) crossed 12.6% forecasts to arrive at 12.9% YoY in the said month.
Focus now on the key US CPI data, up for Friday, which could fuel market chatters over the Fed rate hike.
