Central banks pay attention to this release and use it in their assessment of the possible changes to the interest rate. Rising prices drive policymakers to consider higher interest rates. On the other hand, the slowdown of CPI increases the possibility of a rate cut. June's release turned out to be positive for the CAD. Canadian CPI increased by 0.4% (vs. the forecast of 0.1%).
