USDCAD Forecast: Retracement or Major Trend Change?
Fundamentals: Battle of the dovish Central Banks. BoC kept the interest rates benchmark unchanged and injected a maple dose of dovish rhetoric into the market. On the other hand; FED is prepared to cut interest rates soon despite record stock prices, low unemployment and core inflation above 2.0% because it’s worried about the economy. After 2,5 years Core CPI moved above UST10. That’s why Fed Chairman Jerome Powell isn’t really focused on the economy itself — it’s doing OK, actually. He’s nervous about what economists like to call internal or external “shocks.” A trade war certainly qualifies as one.
Rising Oil prices support the Canadian Dollar. The BoC is expected to end 2019 without a single rate move.
The Surprise Index has been clearly positive for Canada. It puts a large weight on headline employment and the unemployment rate. But as we showed last week, the quality of those job gains means the apparently tight labour market hasn’t translated into particularly strong consumer spending or GDP growth. Indeed, 2019 GDP estimates for Canada have actually fallen further below those for the US even with the “positive” data surprises.
