Canadian Dollar Update January 2, 2018
USD/CAD Open: 1.2535-1.2536 Overnight Range: 1.2520-1.2560
The Canadian dollar was rangebound in overnight currency exchange markets. Oil is at $60.39 and gold is at $1,315. 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 1.2571. Support is at 1.2514.
The Canadian dollar is little changed from last Friday’s multi-month high. CAD is underperforming the majority of G10 currencies, amidst an environment of broad-based USD weakness. CAD’s primary drivers are well supported; WTI continues to maintain levels above $60/barrel, and yield spreads are steady. Expectations for monetary policy tightening in 2018 remain on track, with 25bps of tightening almost fully priced in by the March Bank of Canada meeting. The domestic calendar is quiet ahead of Friday’s employment and trade releases.
Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.2500 – 1.2600
