Canadian economy stagnated in February after three months of growth. This time we’ll get the figures for March. It’s quite clear that the coronavirus had its devastating impact on the data. The bigger the contraction in Canada’s GDP, the more traders will decide to sell the Canadian currency.
If the figure is better-than-thought, the CAD will rise.
Otherwise, the CAD will fall.
