CANADA: BOC rates seen being on hold into 2023 after Gov Macklem says it will
remain 0.25% until inflation is sustainably around 2% target.
-Macklem also said that QE may be tapered off before rates rise, in line with
earlier plan to buy at least CAD5b/wk of federal bonds until recovery is well
-"We will be looking for signs that the recovery is becoming more
self-sustaining," Macklem said at press conference. "Logically yes, the recovery
being well under way comes before capacity has been fully absorbed, but those of
those are some ways off."
-"We continue to think asset purchases will continue at least through the first
quarter of 2021, and likely well into next year," RBC senior economist Josh Nye
says in note. No rate rise until 2023 or later.
-Capital Economics: "Bank signals it will not raise rates until at least 2023."
-"The timing of the first BoC hike could be similar to that for the Fed, in
early 2023," CIBC chief economist Avery Shenfeld said. "the phrase "well
underway" also suggests that QE will end before the policy rate is hiked."
