The rest of the world , but a strong loonie brings us both pain and pleasure: Crossborder shopping is cheap and Vegas beckons -- but how it pinches our returns from U.S. investments. And if you're trading currencies, you need a stomach of steel, because it can be a bumpy ride.
If you have an eye on the Canadian dollar, be sure to join us for an online discussion at noon (ET) on Monday with Camilla Sutton, chief currency strategist at Scotia Capital. She'll be taking your questions. Replay the discussion by clicking on the live blog box below. BlackBerry and iPhone users can view it here.
Prior to joining Scotia Capital, Ms. Sutton was an associate portfolio manager in global derivatives at the Ontario Municipal Employee Retirement Systems (OMERS).
