Bank of Canada Meeting & Press Conference

Bank of Canada Meeting & Press Conference

Canadian central bank raised its benchmark interest rate twice in 2017. At its last meeting in December, Governor Stephen Poloz sounded rather hawkish. At the same time, Canada’s economy has some problems that may make the Bank of Canada (BOC) put off policy tightening. 
The BOC will announce its rate decision at 17:00 MT time on January 17. The probability of a rate hike at this meeting isn’t high, but traders will watch the central bank’s statement and the following press conference at 18:15 MT time. As a result, there are almost no doubts that USD/CAD will make big moves during these events.
