    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The offered tone around CAD gathered pace following the Bank of Canada’s (BOC) downward revision of the GDP, pushing the EUR/CAD higher to its 50-DMA at 1.4827 levels.

    Focus shifts to the ECB

    The investors now await the ECB rate decision due tomorrow. The markets expect the central bank to hint at an extensive/expansion of the QE program in December and/or further cut in the deposit rate. The expectations have kept the common currency on the back foot across the board.

    However, for the time being, the EUR/CAD pair managed to tick higher to its 50-DMA on account of the weak GDP forecasts published by the BOC.
