Thus , a number of better-than -expected readings on the PMI will be a " breath of fresh air " in this area. Meanwhile, add that, given the fact that the World Bank raised its growth forecast for developed countries, the last reading is likely to help confirm this improvement . According to the average forecast in January PMI for the manufacturing sector is expected at 53.2 compared to 52.7 last month , and PMI for the services sector - at the level of 51.5 , compared with 51.0 in December.

Add that it was the biggest decline since October 1997 and the second largest since records began this statistic in 1971.
The Canadian dollar rose slightly against the U.S. dollar in anticipation of the decision of the Bank of Canada. The Bank of Canada is likely to leave rates unchanged at 1%, but all the attention will be focused on the accompanying statement . It is assumed that the monetary authorities will focus again on inflation below the target level , resorting to rhetoric pigeon . However , the Bank is unlikely to be mention of further easing . Governor of the Bank of Canada Stephen Poloz previously reported that it will not raise rates until the employment will not rise and consumer spending will not recover . And since employment in Canada declined by 45 thousand in the last month , it is clear that the economy is still far from those conditions which , according to the runners needed to improve . However, the program can help minimize the Fed CB. Since Canada bond yields rising amid rising yields in the U.S. are growing and long-term rates in Canada .
