Key Quotes

“Over the past month, USD/CAD has been hit by both a repricing of Fed monetary policy and the oil price falling. Meanwhile, the domestic outlook has improved further, which has left rates markets still pricing in close to a full rate hike over the coming year. However, we are a little more cautious on the rate hike outlook and instead emphasise valuation and recovering oil industries as a gravitating force on the cross.”
