The Platinum Way
As most of you know, here at Platinum, we always study the fundamentals first for any currency and then move on the technicals because we believe this provides a true edge to trading the markets.
Let’s analyse and understand what is happening with the Canadian Economy
The Bank of Canada (BOC) kept its key interest rate unchanged at 0.5 per cent in the last meeting in May as it weighed the clashing forces of falling inflation and a surprising burst of economic growth. But BOC warned that these factors could be only temporary. In its statement, the central said that the heated growth in the first quarter (now on a pace to hit 4.7 percent annual rate) will be followed by “some moderation” in the April-to-June quarter. In April, the bank had forecast 3.8 percent GDP growth in the first quarter.
BOC has chosen to play the waiting game once more and is still adjusting the Canadian Economy to lower Oil prices. The Central Bank argues that this is a complete process now, but as far as the fx market is concerned, the Canadian Dollar is still very attached to Oil prices.
Consumer spending and the housing sector continue to be robust on the back of an improving labour market, and these are becoming more broadly based across regions. Macroprudential and other policy measures, while contributing to more sustainable debt profiles, have yet to have a substantial cooling effect on housing markets.
