New Zealand Finance Minister Bill English said a U.S.-kiwi exchange rate in the "mid-to-high 70s" is sustainable for the economy as he seeks steady growth and moderate business cycles.
"We have that opportunity ahead of us over the next three or four years of 3 percent growth," English said in an interview with Bloomberg TV from the Group of 20 summit in Brisbane yesterday.

One-month implied volatility on the ruble, which reflects traders' expectations for future swings in the exchange rate, reached 33 percent on Nov. 10, almost double that of Brazil's real, the second-most volatile among 41 major currencies tracked by Bloomberg.
