Canadian dollar CAD forecasts for 2021

Forecasts for the Canadian dollar change all the time, affected by news events and relative sentiment towards the Canadian economy. But in 2020 CAD exchange rates have been driven almost entirely by the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic rather than any fundamentals of the Canadian economy.

CAD Market Trends and Predictions

The Canadian dollar is expected to rise in 2021 as a global economic recovery takes hold, with larger gains if the Bank of Canada is seen to be preparing to reduce monetary stimulus, economists say.

Canadian Dollar exchange rates have gained amid Canada’s economic outlook and recovering oil prices. Early success in controlling COVID-19 has helped the Canadian economy to rebound as massive government aid boosted consumer spending and low interest rates fueled a surge in the housing market.

Supporting the loonie has been a rise in the oil price (oil is among Canada’s most exported products but is volatile and can’t be relied upon), a large and welcome jump in inflation, and dovishness at major central banks of the world, including the Federal Reserve, ECB and RBA.

The Canadian economy is in “way better shape” than the Bank of Canada currently believes, analysts at Scotiabank said in May before labelling the loonie a “seriously” undervalued currency.
