The Bank of Canada (BoC) on Thursday called for policy changes to spur more housing construction and reduce pressure on inflation caused by a lack of shelter, especially at a time of record immigration. Deputy governor Toni Gravelle spoke a day after the central bank held its key overnight rate at 5% but left the door open to another hike, saying it was still concerned about inflation. Gravelle in a speech to the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce made an unusually forthright plea to local and national governments to speed up new construction, and spent little time discussing the interest rate decision.

Comments from Bank of Japan Governor Kazuo Ueda has traders thinking the central bank will be raising rates, ending it's longtime negative rates policy. Omar Aguilar, Schwab Asset Management CEO & CIO, joins Yahoo Finance to discuss the Japanese economy and how it may impact US investors directly. Aguilar comments on the BOJ ending their current policy: "It puts pressure on global yields for sure. I think competition for bonds will be there and therefore puts more pressure on US bonds. It clearly provides a very nice potential for a Yen appreciation going forward, because on the flip side as the Bank of Japan is trying to raise rates, we see the rest of the central banks potentially cutting rates so that provides a little bit of a tailwind for an appreciation of the currency in Japan. At the same time, it would potentially put a floor into the potential outperformance of Japanese stocks."
