Head of the Bank of Canada Stephen Poloz delivered a speech last night. Usually traders wait for the speech to happen as Poloz has a habit of dropping the hints on the future monetary policies. The report contained information on overall states of economy as well as the inflation rates in the country. The lower are the rates – the better it is for the national currency. These speeches and reports are very important as Poloz has the most influence on CAD than anyone else in Canada.
