I got stuffed on a couple of NZD trades at this time because of the spike (or what passes for a spike these days).

Thanks for that.

Even had I known of the size and nature of one of NZ's most important exports, it wouldn't have protected me from delinquent data.

So how does it work? All the sheep come off the meadows at the end of the day and go to work in the milk powder factory or what?
