Forex Market: CAD/CHF daily forecast

During yesterday’s trading session CAD/CHF traded within the range of 0.8161-0.8206 and closed at 0.8184.

At 8:13 GMT today CAD/CHF was gaining 0.04% for the day to trade at 0.8188. The pair touched a daily high at 0.8205 at 7:15 GMT.

Fundamental view

Retail sales in Canada probably rose by 0.3% in March, after a 0.5% increase in the previous month, according to the median analysts’ estimate.

Retail sales are a key monthly indicator of consumer purchases in Canada. In addition, retail sales are an important component of GDP, which measures the overall production of the Canadian economy. The index does not include any form of direct sales, such as sales door-to-door, vending coffee, sale of newspapers or magazines directly from the printing office or publisher sales made ​​through subscription or club cards. Retail sales made ​​over the Internet are included in the study only when held to the same legal scheme. This is the percentage change from the previous month.

Retail sales excluding autos in Canada probably jumped by 0.3% in March, following a 0.6% gain in the previous month, according to the median forecast by experts.
The index presents the changes in the total value of retail sales without the cars, whose sales account for about 20% of the total. They are excluded due to their high volatility, which can significantly affect the overall trend. Data without car sales is considered to be more representative and determines the direction of development of the indicator more precisely. This is the percentage change from the previous month.

Statistics Canada will release official data at 12:30 GMT. Higher-than-expected gains will certainly provide support to loonie’s demand.
