CAD Falls As Bank of Canada Holds Rate at 1.00%, Sees Scope for Rate Hike

CAD Falls As Bank of Canada Holds Rate at 1.00%, Sees Scope for Rate Hike

Tzu-Wen Chen, Technical Strategist

THE TAKEAWAY: [Bank of Canada keeps rate on hold at 1.00%] > [Reiterates rate hike “may become appropriate” as domestic spending and business investment drive growth] > [CAD weakens]

The Bank of Canada (BoC) announced its decision today to keep its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 1.00 percent, the 16th consecutive time that the Bank has decided to keep rates on hold. The Bank reiterated that it continues to see scope for a rate hike as domestic spending and business investment continue to drive economic growth.

In a statement released today, the Bank stated, “To the extent that the economic expansion continues and the current excess supply in the economy is gradually absorbed, some modest withdrawal of the present considerable monetary policy stimulus may become appropriate, consistent with achieving the 2 percent inflation target over the medium term. The timing and degree of any such withdrawal will be weighed carefully against domestic and global economic developments.”

The Bank acknowledged ongoing global headwinds, with the Chinese economydecelerating more than anticipated, U.S. expansion continuing gradually, and the euro debt crisis remaining “acute”. Softer foreign demand and the persistent strength of the Canadian dollar continue to restrain Canadian exports, which are projected to remain below their pre-recession peak until the beginning of 2014. Nonetheless, the BoC expects the underlying momentum of the Canadian economy to remain at a pace “roughly in line with the economy’s production potential”, with economic growth expected to pick up through 2013.
