Continuing unemployment claims are falling, job openings are going higher, businesses on both sides of the border are reopening at a rapid pace, all signs of growth.
The Canadian dollar is a bit weaker to the USD, even as oil and metal futures are in positive territory. Canada’s retail sales are expected to be down tomorrow, however don’t be surprised if comes in flat.
