The Canadian dollar may move higher
The level of GDP for Canada is going to be released at 15:30 MT time.
As you may know, the GDP growth is the broadest measure of economic activity of a country. Last time it increased by the higher-than-expected level of 0.3%. It made the CAD bulls excited and pushed the loonie higher. If this time it happens again, we can anticipate the rise of the Canadian currency.
• If the GDP is higher than expected, the CAD will rise;
• If the GDP is lower than expected, the CAD will fall.
