Current trend

Yesterday, CAD strengthened against USD after the decision of the Bank of Canada to raise the interest rate to 1.75%.

In the accompanying statement, it was noted that in order to achieve inflation targets, the Board of Governors considered it necessary to increase the interest rate to a neutral value. The regulator will continue to take into account how the economy adjusts to new rates, given the high level of household debt. In order to forecast inflation, special attention will be paid to the events of global trade policy and their consequences.

The pair was under pressure of the decline of New Home Sales in the United States, which indicates a reduction in stimulation of related industries, services, and the labor market. However, USD was supported by the growth of the Markit Service PMI: the figure reached the level of 54.7 points, surpassing the forecast of 54.0.

Today, traders should pay attention to US Durable Goods Orders release at 14:30 (GMT+2), as well as data on US Pending Home Sales at 16:00 (GMT+2). The market expects moderate volatility.
