    Canadian dollar recedes as markets shift focus on BOC, Fed



    The Canadian dollar retreated Monday, as markets have turned their attention on the Bank of Canada and Federal Reserve following Greece closed an agreement with its international lenders. Bank of Canada is set to release its interest rate decision Wednesday, while prospects of Fed increasing rates in September were renewed. The loonie finished at 78.49 US cents from Friday's 78.87 US cents. The likelihood of BOC reducing rates is somewhat weighing on the loonie. “That explains some of the early weakness today,” said Mark Chandler, Head of Canadian Fixed Income and Currency Strategy at RBC Capital Markets. Last week, Statistics Canada reported unemployment rate stayed at 6.8% for the fifth consecutive month. The country also gained a net 32,800 jobs.

    Canadian dollar touches lowest since March 2009 as BOC cuts rate



    The Canadian dollar reached its weakest in over six years Wednesday following the Bank of Canada slashed its main interest rate for a second time this year. The country's central bank cut the rate by 25 basis points to 0.5%, citing sudden economic downfall during the first half of the year. The loonie stood at 77.40 US cents from Tuesday's 78.49 US cents. Certainly, the market was not fully anticipating the rate cut and we have noticed a huge reaction “in both bonds and especially the Canadian dollar,” said Doug Porter, Chief Economist at BMO Capital Markets.

    British pound surges as traders speculate on interest rate hike



    The British pound escalated on Thursday as traders expect the Bank of England to raise interest rates early next year. BOE Governor Mark Carney reiterated a first rate hike since the 2008 financial crash was getting closer and downplayed the effect of a stronger sterling on inflation. The pound traded at 69.64 pence per euro. Against the US dollar, the currency stood at $1.5599. Carney has not been vocal on interest rates, “so that was always going to give sterling a boost," said Angus Campbell, Senior Analyst at FxPro.

    BoJ Minutes: Economic Recovery Is Still On Track



    Members of the Bank of Japan's monetary policy board said that the country's economic recovery continues to grow at a satisfactory pace, minutes from the board's June 18-19 meeting revealed on Tuesday. The recovery is expected to continue, the board said, although downside risks include the European debt situation and the state of commodity exporters. "Japan's economy has continued to recover moderately. Overseas economies - mainly advanced economies -- have been recovering, albeit with a lackluster performance still seen in part," the minutes said. In the battle against deflation, the board said that consumer prices figure to be roughly flat due to falling energy prices. "Inflation expectations appear to be rising on the whole from a somewhat longer-term perspective," the bank said. At the meeting, the bank decided to hold its benchmark lending rate steady at 0.10 percent, and also to maintain its target of raising the monetary base at an annual pace of about 80 trillion yen. The bank also announced plans to reduce monetary policy meetings from 2016, down to eight from the current 14. In addition, it would raise the frequency of its economic outlook reports. Accordingly, it will publish forecasts for the economy and prices on a quarterly basis instead of twice yearly. In terms of economic data, exports have been picking up and steady improvement in the employment and income situation support private consumption. "Quantitative and qualitative monetary easing (QQE) has been exerting its intended effects, and the Bank will continue with QQE, aiming to achieve the price stability target of 2 percent, as long as it is necessary for maintaining that target in a stable manner," the bank said.
