Canadian Dollar Forward Rates
-
-
The chart on the right shows the U.S. Dollar Forward Premium (+) or Forward Discount relative to the Canadian Dollar. The bid-ask midpoint rates shown apply to large-volume transactions in the interbank market around noon time (Eastern) on Wednesday, March 29, 2017. The precise forward rates, in U.S. Dollars per 1 Canadian Dollar, appear in the table on the left. Also reported are the implied forward premium or discount, and the implied foreign interest rate differential at an annualized rate FIRD=100[(f/s)(1/d)-1], where f and s are the forward and spot rate, and d is the forward time in years. If the Canadian Dollar is trading at a USD forward premium, the Canadian Dollar is expected to appreciate. The reverse is true for a forward discount. However, forward rates are poor predictors of the corresponding future spot rates.
