TD's Weekly Outlook

The highlights of today's outlook from TD include:

Australia's central bank raised interest rates this week. They were the first of the G20 countries to do so.
The European Central Bank has maintained its interest rates as it does not see a recovery yet.

Canada's recovery could be hindered by the high Loonie vs. the US dollar.
