USD/CAD Rises on Low Canadian Inflation

Prices in Canada aren’t rising – CPI hasn’t changed in December and Core CPI dropped by 0.3%. This was lower than the already low expectations. This reduces the chances for a rate hike in Canada. The Canadian dollar retreats against the US dollar.

USD/CAD now approaches parity once again after sitting at around 0.99 early in the day. The rise began before the release of the inflation figures, and is accelerating afterwards.

Yohay Elam: Founder, Writer and Editor I have been into forex trading for over 5 years, and I share the experience that I have and the knowledge that I've accumulated. After taking a short course about forex. Like many forex traders, I've earned a significant share of my knowledge the hard way. Macroeconomics, the impact of news on the ever-moving currency markets and trading psychology have always fascinated me. Before founding Forex Crunch, I've worked as a programmer in various hi-tech companies. I have a B. Sc. in Computer Science from Ben Gurion University. Given this background, forex software has a relatively bigger share in the posts.
