The Canadian dollar was rangebound in overnight currency exchange markets.  Oil is at $66.32 and gold is at $1,345.  US futures are higher. There are no major domestic data releases scheduled for today.

The short term Canadian dollar technicals are neutral.  For today, USD resistance is at 1.2598.  Support is at 1.2529.

The Canadian dollar remains quiet, trading narrowly early in the week. Elevated commodity prices continue to provide support to CAD. Market participants are looking towards tomorrow’s Bank of Canada rate decision and MPR update. With trade concerns moderating and constructive data of late, an improved outlook from the Bank of Canada remains a possibility. There are no additional releases scheduled for today.
