CAD to Euro Exchange Rate
Ahh, Europe: home to the Mona Lisa, the David, the Guggenheim museum Bilbao, and the top European tourist attraction: Disneyland Paris.
What influences the CAD/EUR exchange rate?
The CAD/EUR exchange rate may be influenced by commodity prices as Canada’s top exports include crude petroleum and wood products. Interest rates, and inflation rates will also play a role, but the economic health of critical trade partner, U.S.A., may have the most pronounced effect.1
Like the eurozone, Canada is considered one of the world’s top economies.2,3 The European Central Bank governs the monetary policy of the eurozone and, as of 2016, sovereign debt risk in some EU member countries continues to be an important factor for EUR exchange rates. Interest rate differentials are also important in determining the market rate. And, as the largest economy in the eurozone, Germany’s economic data may also play a role in EUR valuations.
