Canadian Dollar Update March 13, 2018

USD/CAD Open: 1.2848-1.2849      Overnight Range:     1.2829-1.2877

The Canadian dollar was rangebound in overnight currency exchange markets.  Oil is at $61.24 and gold is at $1,325.  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 1.2888.  Support is at 1.2822.

The Canadian dollar is lower early in today’s session, returning some of the gains made late last week. Domestic risk for today’s session is limited to Bank of Canada Governor Poloz’s speech on “Today’s labour market and the future of work”. US CPI data was in line with expectations, growing 0.2% month-over-month. Domestic rate expectations have been steady, pricing in 11bps of tightening for the April BoC meeting at present.

Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.2800 – 1.2900
