The ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts will be released at 14:30 MT on January 16
An opportunity to trade the Canadian dollar
The Bank of Canada will make its rate statement on December 5 at 17:00 MT time.
Last time the Reserve Bank of Canada lifted its interest rate to 1.75% in October, as widely expected. It was the third increase this year. The rate reached the highest level since 2008. As the USMCA agreement was reached, the BOC can suggest hints on further tightening of its monetary policy. We do not anticipate the rate hike this time, but the comments from the statement can increase the volatility in the market.
• If the BOC statement is hawkish, the CAD will rise.
• If the BOC statement is dovish, the CAD will fall.
We expect the US-China phase one trade deal to be signed on Wednesday and multiple important indicators for the USD. Plus, it is the first week of the earnings reports
The British yearly CPI will be released at 11:30 MT on January 15
