Toronto Dominion analysts changes rate cut projection
Toronto Dominion’s Andrew Kelvin wrote in the note to clients that he now expects the back of Canada cut rates in April. Previously he was looking for a cut next month.
Kelvin said that,
- The banks tone is more cold water for a January cut, though clearly not a game changer for CAD
- With a resilient economy, the Bank of Canada can afford to wait longer before lowering rates
He cautioned that if the data surprised to the upside the next few quarters in the back of Canada’s 2020 forecast for growth is validated,”we will probably have to abandon the idea of rate cuts altogether”
