Canadian Dollar FX Update April 20, 2017

USD/CAD Open: 1.3492-1.3493      Overnight Range:     1.3461-1.3495

The Canadian dollar was rangebound in overnight currency exchange markets.  Oil is at $50.36 and gold is at $1,281.  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 1.3532.  Support is at 1.3413.

The Canadian dollar is soft, as last month’s post-Fed CAD rally has been erased at current levels. Oil appears to be the dominant factor for CAD, as yesterday’s sharp decline in WTI has pushed CAD lower. The USD appears poised to consolidate as market participants assess the likelihood of a Fed rate hike in June. Domestic releases are limited moving towards tomorrow’s CPI release.

Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.3450 – 1.3550
