Canadian employment change and the unemployment rate will be announced this Thursday and will refer to the month of March. The overall unemployment in February was 5.6%, which was slightly higher than 5.5% in the previous month. In general, the picture in the labor market was moderately positive with more than 30K added jobs. In March, however, it may be difficult to expect the same it was the “hardest” month in the context of the virus damage so far. Also, the oil industry, which is central to Canada as it exports crude to the US, may take a hit and contribute to lower figures.
- If the job data is worse than the market expects, the CAD will drop.
- Otherwise, it will increase in value.
