BOC’s Poloz: cautiously positive on Canadian economy
The CAD developed some bullish momentum but wasn’t able to continue the push into Thursday after the Bank of Canada’s Governor Poloz testified in the Candian Parliament, where he gave the BoC’s take on the Candian economy.
Poloz didn’t cover any new material and, while he remains upbeat about the economy, he did highlight several key weak points that the CAD will struggle to overcome, namely low oil prices suppressing both the CAD and economic growth, as well as uncertainty surrounding the current NAFTA renegotiations.
Thursday is a quiet showing for the pair, but Friday will be bringing US preliminary GDP figures at 12:30 GMT and annualized QoQ GDP is expected at 2.3%, a decline from the previous reading of 2.9%.
26 April USDCAD Fundamental Drivers Analysis
As pointed out by the RoboForex Team,
“the is moving above Ichimoku Cloud, which means that it may continue growing. The markets could indicate that the price may test the upside border of the cloud at 1.2820 and then continue moving upwards to reach 1.2970.
Another signal to confirm further ascending movement is the price’s rebounding from the rising channel’s downside border. However, the scenario that implies further decline may be canceled if the price breaks the downside border of the cloud and fixes below 1.2720. In this case, the pair may continue falling towards 1.2640.”
