An eventful week for the Canadian economy starts today at 1.30pm when manufacturing sales results are released. After beating expectations for the last two months on the bounce, the central bank will be hoping for much of the same. However, the results of these releases on the Canadian currency may be short-lived, as inflation and core retail sales figures will be released on Friday.
New Zealand got off to an early start this week with retail sales figures released overnight, which showed there had been a much better than expected increase of 1.6%, the key driver being auto sales. Tomorrow we will see from the New Zealand economy its inflation expectations and products index.
