In a volatile day yesterday, the Canadian dollar shot higher with Chairwoman Yellen speaking and leaving it open that US rates may not rise in June and Bank of Canada’s Poloz essentially indicating that they a March interest rate cut is unlikely. The Bank of Canada’s Poloz essentially indicated it’s in wait and see mode before deciding the next step. This has helped the Canadian dollar gain strength.
