"The rapid rise in global yields has occurred really for the wrong reasons for Canada", Gilhooly said, noting that the central bank removed its reference to accommodative financial conditions. That would boost economic growth, inflation and debt: if the Joy of Cooking contained a recipe for higher interest rates, that would be it.
The 2-year yield fell 1 basis point further below its US equivalent to a spread of -40.8 basis points.
"Unlike in past statements, the Bank refrained from making a statement regarding the risks to the inflation outlook, perhaps in part due to the elevated level of uncertainty about the direction of USA fiscal and trade policy under the new Administration", said RBC deputy chief economist Dawn Desjardins in a note to investors. The Bank pointed out that while the American economy is operating near full capacity, Canada continues to have a "significant amount of economic slack".
"Uncertainty, which has been undermining business confidence and dampening investment in Canada's major trading partners, remains undiminished", policy makers led by Governor Stephen Poloz said in a statement Wednesday from Ottawa.
