In the information front, the Canadian dollar appears to be helpless after a week ago’s ‘one-two punch’ by means of a strong 48300 new occupations which flagged better days ahead for the benevolent nation. The week ahead exhibits a discharge monetary docket for the Loonie. Nonetheless, brokers are set up to respond as they sit fit in a bustling US-information timetable. Moreover, Fed’s Yellen is next as the national investor confronts ‘Congressional declaration’ which may fuel long-dollar positions.

Fundamental Overview

Canadian job growth unexpectedly surged in January as hiring in the service sector helped the labor market build on its momentum from the latter part of 2016, suggesting the economy was finding its footing. Canada added 48,300 jobs last month, Statistics Canada said on Friday, exceeding economists’ expectations for employment growth to be unchanged. Full-time positions increased by 15,800. Although that was outpaced by a 32,400 increase in part-time work, economists were encouraged by the decline in the unemployment rate to 6.8 percent, even as the participation rate edged up. Canada saw strong jobs growth in the second half of 2016. While much of that came from part-time work, suggesting a deterioration in job quality, economists expect full-time work to be stronger this year. Indeed, the number of full-time jobs has increased by 141,000 since last August, Statistics Canada said.
