About CPI (MoM) Canada
Canadian CPI (MoM) is a primary measurement of inflationary pressures facing the CAD. It is derived and presented by the National Statistics Bureau, a governmental entity. Canadian CPI (MoM) is a comparison of retail prices facing a typical basket of goods and services, compared on a month-over-month basis.  Monetary policy decisions, trade balance, and consumer confidence are sensitive to CPI. Currency markets involving the CAD are receptive to a growing CPI, as it is a signal of inflation. As inflationary pressures grow or reside, the Bank of Canada (BOC) crafts monetary policy accordingly. High CPI values are often viewed as a precursor for tightening monetary policy toward the CAD, while low readings are conducive to a dovish tone.Canadian CPI is capable of swaying CAD valuations dramatically. Strong values lead to bullish participation for the CAD and lagging CPI facilitates bearish price action.
