The Bank of Canada meet on October 30 (ie next week)

Om Tuesday, 22 October though we get the closely watched Bank of Canada update to its Business Outlook Survey

  • for Q3 2019
  • due at 1430 GMT

Via RBC, in summary:

  • the most important release before the BoC's October MPR release
  • Canadian data - both soft and hard - have held up relatively well overall and we do not expect a paradigm shift in the BOS, though do see the headline indicator somewhat weaker than the last iteration
  • Beyond the survey data, the BoC's commentary is probably more important than usual as it could provide additional insights on global influences


ps. ICYMI - Canada election day is today:
