Canadian Dollar Daily Update October 12, 2016

USD/CAD Open: 1.3275-1.3276      Overnight Range:      1.3208-1.3283

The Canadian dollar was rangebound in overnight currency exchange markets.  Oil is at $50.75 and gold is at $1,254.  US futures are lower. There are no major domestic data releases scheduled for today.

The short term Canadian dollar technicals are neutral.  For today, USD resistance is at 1.3281.  Support is at 1.3172.

The Canadian dollar is lower once again, trading in tandem with yield spreads and largely ignoring the rally in oil. Domestic risk is limited this week leading up to next week’s Bank of Canada rate decision for October. US releases and market sentiment will be the main drivers for CAD in the absence of domestic data releases. Contrasting monetary policy between Canada and the US is likely to limit the upside to a rally in CAD.

Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.3250 – 1.3350
