Canadian Dollar FX Update March 2, 2017

USD/CAD Open: 1.3381-1.3382      Overnight Range:     1.3322-1.3385

The Canadian dollar was rangebound in overnight currency exchange markets.  Oil is at $53.06 and gold is at $1,240.  US futures are mixed. Canada releases 4th quarter GDP figures today.

The short term Canadian dollar technicals are neutral.  For today, USD resistance is at 1.3311.  Support is at 1.3404.

Following yesterday’s Bank of Canada meeting, the Canadian dollar is approaching 2017 lows this morning. The Bank of Canada statement highlighted persistent labour market slack and challenges for Canadian export, as well as the apparent policy divergence between Canada and the U.S. Fed fund futures are currently pricing an 88% chance of a March rate hike. Canadian GDP for Q4 surprised to the upside (+2.0% annualized expected vs. +2.6% actual), which has failed to have a material impact on CAD. Oil prices are also lower, contributing to CAD weakness. We expect monetary policy to continue to be CAD’s primary driver leading up to the March Fed meeting.

Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.3350 – 1.3450
