CAD is trading quietly early in what will be a busy week in FX markets. The Fed is in its blackout period before the June 14th policy rate decision. Uncertainty surrounding future monetary policy decisions remains high, as Fed officials have raised concerns about soft inflation. Yield spreads between Canada and the U.S. have begun to stabilize, but still Friday’s employment data will be the most significant data point this week domestically. There are no major domestic releases scheduled for today’s session, making broader market sentiment the primary driver.
Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.3450 – 1.3550
