12:30 Canadian GDP. Risks for CAD: high. In March, the economy is expected to grow by 0.3% m/m and 1.2% y/y. Throughout 2018, GDP growth had slowed, becoming one of the reasons for the formation of the downward trend of the currency. The data above forecast is favourable for the Canadian dollar.

Most recently, the markets have been paying greater attention to the core PCE price index, as an indicator of inflation monitored by the fed.
