Key Quotes

“Core CPI also improved from April, with the average of the Bank of Canada's preferred measures rising from 1.90% to 2.07% y/y.”

“This should provide the Bank some comfort with its current policy stance and allow them to push back against market pricing for cuts. However, any potential rate hikes are still a long ways off, with a number of obstacles to clear beforehand.”

“FX: CAD caught a bid and will fuel speculation that better days remain ahead. However, we require much improved activity data to confirm. In the short-term however, CAD may enjoy a better bid on the crosses (like EUR and AUD) than against the USD, where it trades a touch rich.”
