Finder’s Canadian Dollar Forecast Report

Canadian Dollar Forecast Report

In Finder’s inaugural Canadian Dollar Forecast Report, seven expert panellists from leading currency exchanges and economic research firms forecast the movements of G10 currencies. These include the United States dollar (USD), Euro (EUR), Pound sterling (GBP), Japanese yen (JPY), Australian dollar (AUD), New Zealand dollar (NZD), Canadian dollar (CAD), Swiss franc (CHF), Norwegian krone (NOK), and the Swedish krona (SEK).

Panellists provided their predictions for G10 currencies and responses were pegged to the US dollar. Where panellists were asked for their forecast for the US dollar, panellists responded in the format 1 USD = X CAD. Opinions are solely those of the panellists.
