Bank of Canada Raises Interest Rates by 75 Basis Points

The Bank of Canada (BoC) raised interest rates by 0.75% on Wednesday, firmly in-line with the market expectations. The rate hike comes as Canada looks to cool inflation that sits at 40-year highs. Majority of economists surveyed prior to the rate hike saw a 75 basis point move, with money markets were also effectively priced for 75 bps.

The hike brings the policy rate to 3.25%, the highest among major advanced economies. This also sees the BoC enter “restrictive” territory, as the bank remains keen on lowering sticky inflation. The policy statement showed that central bank officials remain keen on continuing rate hikes in the near future, stating the “Governing Council still judges that the policy rate will need to rise further.”

    • Summary: Still expecting another low for indices, the current move up part of a corrective rally. Normally I look for indices lead from stocks, however some stocks are displaying strength and some weakness so this mix bag is showing up in the Nasdaq 100 pattern as a probable wave four triangle at the current low.

    • A lot of transformation is happening to BNB at the moment with the integration of bitcoin lightning network and Optimism especially with opBNB birth but that has not reflected in users confidence primarily because of the many negativities surrounding the platforms operations in North America and Australia. BGB on the other is gaining traction and value because a lot of investment is going into the development of the ecosystem recently with the injection of $100M and also improved partnership deals
    • I know we still have a lot to do to attract massive crypto adoption but steps like those taken by Binance and bitget in the wake of what happened to FTX is commendable in righting the wrongs of the lapses and loopholes that exist pre-FTX saga. But more still needs to be done to restore confidence to the level it was pre-2020 bear market like consistent regulatory framework and regular security updates by crypto platforms
