    The IMF is usually behind the curve – here it seems though it is just catching up given how overvalued it has been. Much to do with safe haven with Brexit and the EU crisis’s.

    The stand out is just how much Germany benefits from a weak currency – could you image where the DM would be fairly priced?

    FED chiefs all around the world are working to keep the delicate balancing act still working

    They are talking as a basket on trade weighted basis and against majors. Australia and Canada different beasts as commodity currencies and in a low growth environment – will go back and read full report and see if they crack a mention.

    With the IMF the usual ineptitude was on show again. I gave up several times trying to reason with it.

    the entire reason of the Euro was for Germany to debase its currency, the Deutsche Mark

    low growth environment?

    The IMF now expects Canada’s gross domestic product to grow 2.5 per cent this year, leading G7 growth, according to its latest World Economic Outlook. That’s up from the prior forecast of 1.9 per cent released in April.

    IMF predicts Canada will pass the U.S. to top G7 growth this year

    Indeed good to Canada’s growth is kicking on but am talking about world growth with all the trillion’s printed the US and European growth has never taken off with that about of pump priming should it not be over 4% minimum?

    Canada’s stronger growth would support it’s currency or will that be under siege with a higher Loonie and raised rates?
