USD/CAD Open: 1.3166-1.3167 Overnight Range: 1.3144-1.3190
The Canadian dollar was rangebound in overnight currency exchange markets. Oil is at $42.87 and gold is at $1,339. 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 1.3186. Support is at 1.3133.
The Canadian dollar has traded in a remarkably tight range early in the week, consolidating last week’s relative policy driven losses. Oil prices continue to move higher, but an increasingly bearish outlook on the Canadian economy continues to weigh on the Canadian dollar. Last week’s soft employment and trade data have led to deterioration in expectations for the Canadian economy, as OIS is now pricing in a 25% chance of a rate cut over the next year. There are no major domestic data releases until Friday’s retail sales.
Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.3100 – 1.3200
