Schneider Foreign Exchange on Canada

“There’s room for the Canadian economy to continue with a relatively strong degree amid EU sovereign-debt problems", Stephen Gallo, head of market analysis at Schneider Foreign Exchange, said. “I’d be very surprised if a portion of the recent strength we’ve seen in the Canadian dollar weren’t related to safe-haven flows.”

EU session review: Swiss franc rises on safe-haven demand

Data released:
08:00     Italy     Consumer confidence (July)    103.7    104.0    105.8

Investors buy the safe-haven currencies like the Swiss franc and yen today as global sovereign debt concerns were heightened by a further downgrade of Greece and the continuing political disputes in the US over the country’s debt ceiling.
Moody’s, the rating agency, on Monday downgraded Greek sovereign debt by three notches, saying that following last week’s €159bn bail-out by the European Union and International Monetary Fund, the country’s second major rescue pay-out, the risk of default was now almost a certainty.
“The announced programme implies that the probability of a distressed exchange, and hence a default, on Greek government bonds is virtually 100 per cent,” Moody’s said. But the rating agency was broadly positive about the bail-out, adding that Greece could now stabilise and eventually reduce its overall debt burden.
The situation in the US also dominated investors’ concerns, as meetings between President Obama and senior Republicans to discuss lifting the country’s debt ceiling to avoid default ended in stalemate.

The dollar slid toward a record low against the Swiss franc after U.S. lawmakers failed to agree on raising the nation’s $14.3 trillion debt ceiling, boosting the odds of a default as soon as next week.
The franc and yen rose against most of their major peers as Republicans prepared to force action on a shorter-term extension of the debt limit than President Barack Obama has requested, spurring demand for the currencies as havens. 
Gains in the yen were limited on speculation Japan will intervene in markets to stop its appreciation. The euro pared its advance after Moody’s Investors Service cut Greece’s sovereign credit rating.
Gains in the yen were limited after it reached levels that spurred coordinated selling of the currency in March. Bank of Japan Governor Masaaki Shirakawa said today that the yen’s strength could hurt the economy and the central bank is ready to take appropriate action as needed.
The euro dropped for the first time in three days against the franc after Moody’s slashed its long-term foreign currency debt rating on Greece to Ca from Caa1. The European Union support package for Greece allows the country an “orderly default” and buys time, according to Moody’s.
