Best opportunities for Canadian Dollar buyers since 2007

With the sharp drop in oil prices at the beginning of this year and with the Bank of Canada cutting their interest rates twice since January, the Canadian Dollar has been one of the worst performing of the major currencies in 2015.

In fact, since the beginning of the year, the CAD has weakened against the Pound by more than 12%, offering up some of the best opportunities for buying Canadian Dollars since 2007.

CAD could strengthen on Friday this week

On Friday this week however, we could see some respite for anyone exchanging Canadian Dollars for Pounds, as inflation data for July is anticipated to highlight a slight improvement. This would signal that their most recent interest rate cut is starting to benefit the economy, which could in turn strengthen the CAD. With this in mind, anyone buying CAD should look to move early to avoid any potential losses on Friday.
