Canadian Dollar Update January 18, 2019

USD/CAD Open: 1.3264-1.3265      Overnight Range:     1.3231-1.3288

The Canadian dollar was rangebound in overnight currency exchange markets.  Oil is at $52.70 and gold is at $1,282.  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 1.3321.  Support is at 1.3189.

The Canadian dollar is little changed following this morning’s CPI data release for December. Inflation grew 2% on a year-over-year basis in December, beating expectations of 1.7% growth. The recent caution expressed by the Bank of Canada led to the muted reaction from markets. 10 basis points of tightening are being priced in by the Bank of Canada by July. There are no additional releases scheduled for today.

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