    Canadian Ivey PMI comes out once per month at 10:00 am New York Time.

    PMI stands for Purchasing Managers Index. Around 200 executives of most major companies in Canada, spread around different sectors, get asked whether their business is doing better, worse, or the same as previous month. When half of executives do worse and the other half do better, the number reads 50. When more executives do better, the number reads above 50. When more executives do worse, the number reads below 50.

    Higher number signifies that Canadian economy is doing better, which in turn means that Canada will be more likely to eventually increase its interest rate. When interest rate of a country is higher, it attracts investors to buy its currency, which increases the value of the currency versus other currencies.

    So, when Ivey PMI comes out better than expected, traders tend to speculatively buy Canadian dollars, so USD/CAD tends to go down. When Ivey PMI comes out worse than expected, traders tend to speculatively sell Canadian dollars, so USD/CAD tends to go up.
