Trading the News: Canada Consumer Price Index (CPI)
Another downtick in Canada’s headline & core Consumer Price Index (CPI) may push USD/CAD to fresh weekly highs as it puts pressure on the Bank of Canada (BoC) to further embark on its easing cycle.
What’s Expected:
Click Here for the DailyFX Calendar
Why Is This Event Important:
Even though BoC Governor Stephen Poloz largely endorses a wait-and-see approach for monetary policy, the central bank may keep the door open to further reduce the benchmark interest rate as the Canadian economy continues to adjust to the oil-price shock.
Expectations: Bearish Argument/Scenario
Existing Home Sales (MoM) (JUN)

Building Permits (MoM) (MAY)
International Merchandise Trade (MAY)
Easing home prices accompanied by the weakening outlook for global growth may drag on inflation, and a dismal CPI report may produce near-term headwinds for the Canadian dollar as it fuels speculation for additional monetary support.
Risk: Bullish Argument/Scenario
Wholesale Trade Sales (MoM) (MAY)
Raw Materials Price Index (MoM) (MAY)
Retail Sales (MoM) (APR)
However, rising input costs paired with the pickup in private-sector consumption may prompt Canadian firms to boost consumer prices, and an unexpected uptick in the headline as well as core rate of inflation may heighten the appeal of the Canadian dollar as it encourages the BoC to gradually move away from its easing cycle.

Canada’s headline reading for inflation slipped to an annualized 1.5% from 1.7% in May, led by falling food prices, with the core rate narrowed to 2.1% from 2.2% during the same period. A deeper look the report showed the cost for food contracted another 0.3% in May,with prices for clothing & footwear holding flat for the second consecutive month, while transportation costs increased 1.3% during the same period.

Whether you’re a seasoned trader or a novice, the oldest piece of advice in economics still holds true: buy low and sell high. The challenge lies in determining the right time to purchase stocks that are undervalued or to sell those that are overpriced. There are plenty of signs to crack that code, but one of the clearest is the insiders’ trading patterns. The insiders are corporate officers, companies’ higher-ups, whose positions put them ‘in the know.’ Therefore, monitoring their trades, espec

“Bizarre” was the word Biden administration officials used to describe the timing of Fitch’s downgrade of America’s credit rating. The Federal Reserve’s fight against inflation has amplified the risk of an unthinkable fiscal crisis made possible by decades of Washington dysfunction.

Elon Musk says his fight with Mark Zuckerberg is definitely happening, and I'm so, so sorry I have to write these words and present them in this article. To pull back the curtain, every time Musk does something asinine and moronic, we in the media wrestle with the anguish of whether or not we actually have to write about this stupid shit – and the unfortunate answer, a lot of the time, ends up being 'yes.' In case you've somehow been blissfully unaware of this whole frustratingly stupid saga, Musk and Zuckerberg have been playing out an extended 'will-they-or-won't-they' with the notion that they'll MMA fight each other for no reason other than that masculine identity is truly in some kind of significant crisis tied to the horrors of late-stage capitalism.
