Trump tweets ahead of NFP data

By | 2:32 pm | 0 Comments

This morning at 7:21am, President Trump sent out a seemingly casual, yet powerful tweet that turned out to be a possible foreshadow of data to come.

The President tweeted the following about one hour before the employment data was released at 8:30am:

As it turns out, the employment data came in strong as jobs and wages are up and the unemployment rate is down.

There has been a great deal of chatter and speculation circulating about the tweet since. Opinions are varied and continue to keep rolling in. The center of focus are the intentions of the President’s tweet and the potential legality of it.

US Tariffs Announced

By | May 31, 2018 10:29 am | 0 Comments

The United States announced its plans to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imported from Canada, Mexico and the European Union. United States equity took a bit of a dip as a result of this decision, causing a rippling effect with Dollar pairs.

Although these tariffs will be imposed, it seems that NAFTA negotiations will continue as we move forward.

The trade war remains clouded with speculation as we wait with two main questions – what will happen next? Which countries will be involved next?

Be on the lookout for reactions and/or countermeasures from Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

Bank of Canada Rate Statement

By | May 30, 2018 10:39 am | 0 Comments

The Canadian Dollar flew this morning on the back of the Canadian rate announcement. Sending Dollar Canada into a nosedive, over a big figure lower. All Canadian crosses experienced sharp moves as well, reacting accordingly to the sudden Canadian Dollar strength.

The Bank of Canada left their rates unchanged at 1.25%, which what was expected. However, the move was generated from the language of the Rate Statement. The removal of their “cautious” language in their approach to their rates. It is likely that inflation will be higher even though the BOC maintains its target of 2%.

It was a very confident statement that left us with a positive and upbeat view of the Canadian economy moving forward.
