A monthly video series on the trajectory of the Canadian dollar

In this edition of the George Davis report, George discusses how the broader macro-economic landscape in Canada has led to the steadfast nature of the Bank of Canada’s policy stance 


What you need to know


A divergence continues to exist between the US Federal Reserve’s policy stance and that of the Bank of Canada.


Canadian economic growth is running close to potential, with inflation right at the BoC’s 2% target.


Canadian interest rates are below those of the US – despite firmer Canadian inflation trends relative to target.


This will provide the BoC with more time to remain on the sidelines before perhaps joining the Fed and other global central banks in cutting rates.


USD/CAD features a key long-term (7-year) support trendline near 1.3050 that should be monitored.

Hedging Strategies:



1.3000 – 1.3100


1.3400 – 1.3500
