Welcome to Tuesday!
Will the inflation data support the CAD?
Canada will release the monthly consumer price index (CPI) on February 27 at 15:30 MT time.
Last month the level of consumer price index declined by 0.1%. However, it still was higher than the forecast. As a result, the CAD didn't suffer that much. This time the higher-than-expected level will be appreciated by the market again.
• In case CPI outperforms the forecast, the CAD will rise.
• In case CPI comes out lower, than the forecast, the CAD will fall.
