Barclays Capital Research argues that it is  unlikely for CAD to get further support from monetary policy expectations as the BoC enters the blackout period before the July 12 meeting.

“We believe a sustainable inflation close to target is difficult to attain given the lack of price pressures and subdued wages.

We think it is premature for the BoC to tighten and would fade market excitement,” Barclays argues.

In terms of  this week’s drivers,  Barclays notes that oil price gyrations, US and domestic data, including May building permits, international trade, Markit manufacturing PMI and the dual employment report on Friday, are likely to drive CAD.
