Canadian Market Outlook
GoCs were little changed after a quite session overnight, with attention turning to U.S. corporate earnings and next week's FOMC announcement. The 10-year yield had softened 0.5 bp to 1.57%, remaining within reach of last week's trough at 1.54%. And USD-CAD had stabilized around 1.3000, after having made a new six-year high on Monday at 1.3027. The domestic data calendar is bare, although there will be a C$500 million cash management bond repurchase operation, with an offer deadline of 11.15am ET. Supply this week features the C$3.3 billion GoC 5-year auction on Wednesday. And May retail sales data is awaited on Thursday, with potential to raise pressure on the Bank of Canada to cut further.
