USD/CAD Open: 1.2158-1.2159 Overnight Range: 1.2118-1.2189
The Canadian dollar was rangebound in overnight currency exchange markets. Oil is at $49.91 and gold is at $1,329. US futures are mixed. There are no major domestic data releases scheduled for today.
The short term Canadian dollar technicals are neutral. For today, USD resistance is at 1.2195. Support is at 1.2108.
The Canadian dollar continues to consolidate. CAD’s primary drivers are positive, as WTI is approaching $50/barrel, and spreads continue to favour CAD upside. U.S. retail sales data did not meet expectations, and expectations of an additional rate hike coming this calendar year are moderating. There are no domestic releases scheduled in Canada today, leaving CAD to track the broader market.
Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.2100 – 1.2200
