The Canadian dollar opens the morning flat. Yesterday’s speech from Governor Poloz did not include protest against the recent Canadian dollar rally. However, he did allude to the still-evident slack in the Canadian economy, which can be interpreted as Canada not looking to raise rates anytime soon. The Canadian economy, alongside commodity prices, has performed well enough that a rate hike should be off the table as well. Look to oil prices as well as yield spreads to help fuel the Canadian dollar rally.
Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.2650 – 1.2750
