Pound to Canadian dollar predictions: What to expect this month

Canadian Dollar strengthens on positive economic data and problems with the Brexit

The Pound has remained in a very tight range against the Canadian Dollar during today's trading session as there has been very little economic data due out today. The Canadian Dollar improved on Friday as Canada released some very strong retail sales data and this helped the CAD strengthen to close to its best levels to buy Sterling in 2 months. Canadian inflation data also came out better than expected and this has provided evidence to support the recent interest rate hike to 1.5% by the...

NAFTA talks drag on which causes the Canadian Dollar to weaken against the Pound

The Canadian Dollar has once again come under pressure against the Pound as the three countries involved in the NAFTA negotiations are not close to a deal yet. US Congress appears to be running out of time at the moment in order to approve a new deal and with the Mexican election just over 3 weeks away I think it will be difficult to get things organised in the short term and this uncertainty is causing a problem for the Canadian Dollar. According to one source...
Trump trade optimism sends the Pound to AUD rate lower

Canadian Dollar slips as Trump makes new NAFTA surprise!

The Canadian Dollar has lost value today after a surprise comment from the US' White House chief economic adviser. Larry Kudlow is chief economic adviser to the White House so he has a close relationship with US President Donald Trump. Today Kudlow confirmed that Trump wishes to negotiate separate bilateral deals with Mexico and Canada. The reason for the market reaction is due to this coming as a surprise, and also the change it will bring if it goes ahead. The current plan in place...

Bank of Canada interest rate decision and the impact on GBPCAD rates

The Bank of Canada are due to be meeting later this evening to announce their latest interest rate decision. The expectation is to keep interest rates on hold so I don't think we'll see any changes in monetary policy, however, the important part of the day will be the accompanying statement which will provide us with evidence as to why they have decided this month's policy. The Canadian Dollar has been gradually improving against the Pound during the last few months but we could start to...

Canadian Dollar Supported ahead of Bank of Canada Meeting

The Canadian dollar continues to find support as the price of oil climbs higher and the concerns over the renegotiation of the NAFTA agreement have softened in recent weeks. Ever since US President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal the price of oil has been inching higher and this is helping strengthen the Canadian dollar. There is currently a good opportunity for selling Canadian dollars. As a commodity currency and net exporter of oil the Canadian dollar tends to strengthen when oil...

Could UK Retail Sales help to increase the Pound vs the Canadian Dollar?

The Canadian Dollar has continued to strengthen during the course of this week against the Pound and it appears to be following the same trend as what is also happening with GBPUSD rates. Oil prices have been on the rise and the highest they have been for a few years and as Canada is such a huge oil exporter this is likely to provide the Canadian Dollar with a lot of strength as it should in theory help to reduce the Trade Balance and increase...

Canadian Dollar Strength although NAFTA Uncertainty Remains

The Canadian dollar continues to make gains across most of the major currencies including the pound as the price of oil climbs higher. The price of oil has been climbing higher after tensions escalated in the Middle East following the decision from US President Donald Trump to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. This geopolitical uncertainty is pushing the price of oil higher and this is so far proving beneficial for the Canadian dollar due to the fact that Canada is a net...

Will the Pound have a positive end to the week against the Canadian Dollar?

In the last few days the Canadian Dollar has improved against the Pound after the Bank of England decided to once again keep interest rates on hold. The split was 7-2 in favour of keeping rates the same which came as no surprise but the real surprise was a huge downgrading of the UK's growth forecasts for 2018. Previously in February the forecast for this year was 1.8% but since then the forecast was now been changed to 1.4% and this caused a big sell...

US President Donald Trump has pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal which is creating uncertainty in the...

Stronger Canadian Dollar as oil price strengthens, will the strong run for oil help...

The Loonie (Canadian Dollar) has begun the week in strong fashion after gaining on the US Dollar during today's trading session. After a few very strong weeks for the Greenback (US Dollar) it's currently heading for its 4th successive day of losses, with some believing that the bull run for the US Dollar is running out of steam. One of the main reasons for CAD's strength apart from benefiting from the weaker Dollar is the stronger oil price. It's been increasing in value recently for a...
