Canadian Dollar Update February 7, 2019

USD/CAD Open: 1.3267-1.3268      Overnight Range:     1.3201-1.3280

The Canadian dollar was rangebound in overnight currency exchange markets.  Oil is at $53.51 and gold is at $1,314.  US markets are higher. There are no releases scheduled for today’s session.

The short-term USD/CAD technicals are neutral-bearish.  For today, USD resistance is at 1.3314.  Support is at 1.3214.

The Canadian dollar is lower once again early in today’s session. A worsening growth outlook in Europe is weighing on risk appetite, as the Bank of England downgraded its growth forecast for 2019. Wider yield spreads are weighing on CAD as oil prices stagnate. Only 6bps of tightening from the Bank of Canada are being priced in by July. There are no domestic releases scheduled for today.

Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.3200 – 1.3300
