USD/CAD: Canadian Dollar Edges Higher, Canadian Manufacturing PMI Next

The Canadian dollar has recorded small gains on Tuesday, after starting the week with slight losses. Currently, USD/CAD is trading at 1.3160, down 0.21% on the day. On the release front, there are no key indicators on the schedule. Canada will release Manufacturing PMI. In the U.S., Factory Orders are expected to rebound to 0.1% in May, after a dismal decline of 0.8% in April.

With the first week in July marked by holidays in Canada and the U.S., we are unlikely to see much movement from USD/CAD until later in the week. That could change on Friday, as Canada will release key employment data. Investors are also keeping a watchful eye, as the Bank of Canada holds a key policy meeting on July 11. The bank has been dropping strong hints that a rate hike could be coming soon. Last week, BoC Governor Stephen Poloz had a hawkish message for the markets, noting that inflation was on target and the domestic economy was performing well. However, Poloz also mentioned that the trade war between Canada and the U.S. was hurting business investment.With the U.S. showing no signs of easing its tariffs with major trading partners, including Canada, the BoC may decide to sit on fence and wait for trade tensions to ease before raising interest rates. A strong showing from Canadian job numbers on Friday could sway the bank to press the rate trigger next week.
