Canada CPI





The Canadian Dollar rallied in Forex markets, as consumer prices were reported to have risen more than expected in March. The annual inflation rate retouched the 23-month high at 1.5%.

The Loonie rally on the improved inflation data may have surprised Forex traders after the Bank of Canada said yesterday that higher inflation this year is only transitory and the 2% inflation target is unlikely to be met until 2016. The BoC left its target interest rate at 1% yesterday and maintained a neutral tone on the rate change. However, continually higher inflation may prompt the BoC to tighten policy sooner than expected.

USD/CAD fell 25 pips to a daily low at 1.0983 following the release of the inflation data, but support may continue to be provided by the key 1.1000 level. Currency Strategist Ilya Spivak says a USD/CAD close above resistance at 1.1017 may expose another 100 pips of upside momentum.
