Canadian GDP growth may push the CAD up
The level of monthly GDP for Canada is expected on March 1, at 15:30 MT time.

The actual level came out in line with the analysts' expectations. If this time the release is higher than the forecast, the CAD will be supported.
• If GDP growth is higher than expected, the CAD will rise;
• If GDP growth is lower than expected, the CAD will fall.
