What does the Bank of Canada think about the CAD?

Instruments to trade: USD/CAD, EUR/CAD, GBP/CAD

On November 26, the Bank of Canada published an opening statement for the government. According to it, the economy is still dealing with pandemic problems. Moreover, the situation with the Canadian economy will heavily depend on the virus. At the same time, the regulator believes that vaccines and effective treatment will be widely available by mid-2022. The employment is recovering, but it still has fewer jobs than it did before the pandemic. The same goes for Canadian inflation, as the most recent release showed CPI at 0.7% in October. Thus, the Bank of Canada sees such measures as a low interest rate (currently held at 0.25%), and quantitative easing appropriate until the recovery is underway. It’s unlikely that we will see any changes to the interest rate or easing measures. However, the tone of the statement may provide additional insights into the bank’s decisions.

  • If the statement is hawkish, the CAD will strengthen.
  • If the statement is dovish, the CAD will fall.
