  1. How can Cdn mortgage rates not be tied to the BoC rate? If the BoC changes the rate, right away that changes the spread for lenders. If they want to maintain the spread they change the rates based on the move the BoC made.
  2. I get what you're saying, but I don't think it is that cut and dry. The other factor in valuing the CAD is the oil price. All things being equal, if the price of oil were to move to $60+, I think the CAD would strengthen as well. Also, lenders are going to factor in over concentration to one asset class over another, so that can play a role as well. Can you overlay the US 10 year, with average fixed term Cdn mortgage rates on a long term chart?
  3. How do you figure that?

  5. Nope, but that's besides the point.
  6. Close this thread. The election is done. What's left now is speculation and more garbage reporting from the media.

  9. Lady Gaga rallies voters for Hillary Clinton in North Carolina - CNN Hmm, where have we seen Lady Gaga before? Right, doing 'performance art'.
