The gross domestic product measures the change in the value of the goods and services produced by the economy. Also, it tends to move the domestic currency pretty much. Last month, the Canadian dollar appreciated right after the release. Though the figures signaled that the economy was weak, they came out better than the forecasts (-11.6% vs. -12.5% expected). Prepared for the worse, traders started to buy the CAD against other currencies. That’s why it’s a good chance for trading the CAD on Friday.
