USDCAD Price Chart Canadian Dollar Technical Outlook

The Bank of Canada also noted that it will not renew commercial paper, province, or corporate bond purchases. That said, the BoC conveyed that it will continue its current pace of QE at C$4-billion per week. This could be helping USD/CAD retrace a bit of its move lower. Furthermore, BoC Deputy Governor Gravelle also mentioned that scaling back bond purchases will be gradual, adding that adjusting QE won’t necessarily signal change in views on when to raise the central bank’s benchmark interest rate.
