Canadian Dollar Sideways Amid Lower Crude Prices, BOC Comments

The Canadian dollar was unable to keep the momentum from last week’s strong jobs report, and the loonie could not get a boost on Monday on bullish comments from the head of the Bank of Canada (BOC).

Canadian Dollar Soft Despite Expanding GDP

Canadian Dollar Weakens As BOC Rate Hike Buzz Fades

The Canadian dollar is trading slightly lower on Monday as the buzz from the Bank of Canada (BOC)’s recent increase to interest rates has ostensibly faded.
