Talking Points:

-USD ISM Non-Manufacturing Composite (NOV) beats market expectations

- USDCAD falls to 1.1352

Bank of Canada decided to leave its main policy rate unchanged at 1.00% in line with market expectations. The follow up statement indicated a relatively balanced and neutral tone with respect to Canadian economic outlook. Bank of Canada follow up statements focused on signs of a broadening recovery, however highlighted the downside inflation risk present in current Oil prices.

USD ISM Non-Manufacturing Composite November data beat market expectations with a headline reading of 59.3 versus analyst estimates of 57.5. US Services industries expanded at thet second fastest pace in more than nine years according to a Bloomberg release follow up, which will strengthen investor sentiment that the US economy will continue its upward trend despite a global economic slowdown. ISM Survey Chairman Nieves made comments directed at the unlikely probability of a sharp downdraft due to relevant US market dynamics.
