GDP figures boost Canadian Dollar

Will Pound to Euro Rates Gain in September?

*Breaking news* we have just had the revised figures for Gross Domestic Products in the Canadian economy for the month of July. A significant barometer for measuring growth in the economy, these data releases normally have a powerful effect on Canadian Dollar exchange rates. The growth in the economy for the single month of July came in at +0.3%, and this was even when oil prices were at their lowest.

The Canadian Dollar itself has received a lot of attention from the news. Previously GBP/CAD rates were moving upwards this morning as Sterling was recovering from its recent bout of weakness. This news has halted the rise and reversed the trend. GBP/CAD is now down a full cent to 2.026 and still falling, as confidence in the Canadian economy is rocketing.

USD/CAD has also moved down from 1.34 to 1.33 with this Canadian Dollar strength. But the greatest gains today were against the Euro, where EUR/CAD fell from 1.51 to 1.49.

Anyone looking to use the Canadian Dollar as a purchasing currency just got presented a fantastic short-term opportunity. Email me on djw@currencies.co.uk for a competitive quote on your transfer and we can discuss a strategy on how to maximize any further moves in your favour.
