Not a lot of market-moving reports from Canada, which means Loonie traders will look to risk sentiment for cues this week.

Thinking of trading the Canadian dollar over the next couple of days?

Check out the potential catalysts that might move the comdoll:

Lower-tier releases

  • New housing price index (Nov 12, 1:30 pm GMT) last showed a 1.2% uptick, is unlikely to inspire sustained moves for CAD
  • Bank of Canada (BOC) Senior Deputy Governor Wilkins to give a speech (Nov 12, 6:30 pm GMT). She will be leaving her post on December 9, months before her seven-year term ends in May

Overall risk sentiment

  • As one of Uncle Sam’s close neighbors, uncertainty over the U.S. election results would mean uncertainty over the next U.S.-Canadian policy agreements
  • Lockdowns in the European region and increasing COVID-19 cases around the world will limit economic activity and weigh on crude oil demand. Bad news for the oil-related Loonie
