USD/CAD Fundamental Analysis October 23, 2012 Forecast

Analysis and Recommendations:

The USD/CAD gained some strength today on positive sentiment towards the USD. Investors in Canada are looking forward to Tuesday's policy statement from the Bank of Canada and the release of its quarterly assessment of the economy, due Wednesday.

Investors are increasingly anticipating that the central bank will alter its tone from slightly hawkish to solidly neutral, by omitting a reference that "some modest withdrawal of the present considerable monetary policy stimulus may become appropriate. Friday's softer inflation data and Bank of Canada Governor Mark Carney's seemingly more-dovish speech in British Columbia last week continue to weigh on the Loonie.
