The CAD is weaker. No rate changes are expected, but a dovish policy stance is probable. See the FOREX FORUM for latest key data and charts as they are released.
- Australia 4Q13 CPI data were hotter than expected and might have taken a rate cut off the table. Aus 10-yr yields are higher and the AUD has risen n response to developments.
- Fed policy is very much data-dependent. That will not change when Yellen takes the helm from Bernanke in just under two weeks. Friday was the major data day of the past week. Housing Starts and Permits for December provide an advance look at the critical (for job creation) housing industry and they are now showing little improvement from the middle of 2013.
- U.S. data recently has been sending mixed signals. Key housing and the University of Michigan survey data seem to be indicating that the real-time economy might be flattening out while other recently-released data have been suggesting the economy continues to recover.
