SYDNEY, Oct 31 (Reuters) - The New Zealand dollar climbed about a third of a U.S. cent on Thursday after the country's central bank said interest rates will probably have to be raised next year.
The kiwi rose as high as $0.8278 from around $0.8230. As was expected, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand left its cash rate unchanged at a record low 2.5 percent following its October policy meeting.
