THE TAKEAWAY: CAD Gross Domestic Product (FEB) > +0.3% versus +0.2% expected, from +0.3% (revised up from +0.2%) (m/m) > +1.7% versus +1.3% expected, from +1.1% (revised up from +1.0%) (y/y) > USDCAD BEARISH

Stale but nevertheless important growth data from February released today showed that the world’s eleventh-largest economy beat expectations, sending the Canadian Dollar to fresh highs versus the US Dollar. The Canadian economy grew by +0.3% in February, slightly above the +0.2% forecasted figure (all on a monthly-basis), while over the past year, the economy grew by 1.7%.

Needless to say, the stronger growth data continues to unwind some of the concerns that have arisen in recent weeks. The Canadian Dollar lagged the other commodity currencies, the Australian and New Zealand Dollars, as the Bank of Canada said that an interest rate hike was “less imminent” amid disinflation that saw the yearly CPI rate fall to +1.0%. However, rate expectations are firmly in neutral now that it appears the BoC will be in neutral through at least the 3Q’13.
