Canadian dollar stronger on better economic news

By MoneyWay | Mar 31, 2021

Canada’s monthly GDP came in better than expected, today’s increase of 0.7% was outside the range with 0.5% being the top.  The USDCAD got as low as 1.2539 and has since given back some of its gains.

Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan unveils today with preliminary expectations of a new corporate tax rate of 28%.

The USDCAD will likely trade in a narrow range with a tendency to move back to the 1.2600 level.
