Will the BOC surprise with a rate hike?
The Bank of Canada will release the interest rate on October 24 at 17:00 MT time.
The market anticipates a rate hike. It’s not a secret that an increase of the interest rate always supports the currency. Last time the Bank of Canada has raised the interest rate in July 2018.

• In case of the neutral/negative rate, the CAD will fall.
