  • Bets against Canadian dollar take dramatic turn as speculators run for cover

    Bets for and against the Canadian dollar have taken a notable shift, turning to the bullish side of the ledger for the first time since last September. According to the latest report from the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission, bets on the loonie have shifted to a small net long position of $355-million (U.S.), a move of almost $690-million from a week earlier. This has occurred as the loonie gained strength along with the rally in oil prices and a more optimistic message from the Bank of Canada that suggests, at this point, at least, that another rate cut is not in the cards. "Details are somewhat concerning however, as we note the paring back of risk to both sides, hinting to broader uncertainty and a lack of conviction on the part of bulls," Bank of Nova Scotia currency strategist Eric Theoret said of the latest CFTC report, which was released on Friday with numbers as of last Tuesday.

  • Income splitting used by high-income professionals for decades: study - BNN News

    Some of Canada’s highest-earning professionals have been reaping large tax gains for decades by splitting income with their spouses using private corporations, but the practice has fallen into a “dark corner” of tax rules and has received little government scrutiny, according to a new academic study. A paper co-authored by University of Ottawa Professor Michael Wolfson, one of Canada’s top researchers on income and equality issues, said there was much debate of Ottawa’s new program this year allowing some income splitting for couples with children, but most people don’t realize income splitting has long existed for thousands of professionals such as doctors and lawyers who have been able to funnel their incomes through private companies they create to hold their income. “Over in this dark corner of the tax system that most people don’t know exists and most people don’t understand how it works, income splitting has been going on for decades,” Prof. Wolfson said in an interview.
