US ADP payroll data released this morning was stronger than expected. All eyes are on the upcoming FED minutes to gauge future stimulus plans. Weakness in yesterday’s Canadian trade data had the loonie tanking sharply. Adding to this was BOC Poloz indicating inflation is low, a potential sign that interest rates aren’t moving up anytime soon, which doesn’t bode well for the Canadian dollar.
