Canada’s CPI and Retail Sales

Canada’s CPI and Retail Sales

Canadian inflation figures are considered to be very important by Forex traders who use CPI release to estimate the likelihood of another rate hike this year. The Bank of Canada is expected to continue raising interest rates, but only as long as price pressures hold up.
Canada’s annual inflation rate rose from 1.0% in June to 1.2% in July. Following this release, Canadian central bank raised its interest rate for the first time in 7 years. If CPI number once again exceeds expectations, traders will buy the CAD. If the reading disappoints, Canadian currency will suffer.
Retail sales will also be published at 15:30 MT time on September 22. The last release showed that the nation’s retail sales cooled in June after three consecutive months of solid growth. So far, the data doesn’t derail the rate hike prospect, but the CAD will be very sensitive to the indicator’s update.
