The Canadian dollar is higher this morning on the back of a stronger than expected CPI and retail sales data release. This might be a sigh of relief for those hoping for a higher loonie but the underlying trend is still a stronger US dollar because the Bank of Canada appears dovish while the FED appears hawkish. Interest rate policy seems to be the biggest driver of the USD/CAD and it will take several surprises to the upside for Canadian data to change current momentumn.
Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.1150 – 1.1299
