West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil prices have more than doubled since touching $10.08/b on April 28. The catalyst for the move was the onset of OPEC/Russia agreement to slash crude production by 10.0 million barrels per day, beginning May 1. Gasoline sales have started to increase with the reopening of previously locked-down Texas cities and in China. Optimistic crude price forecasts are also supporting prices. Goldman Sachs expects WTI prices to climb to $51.38/b in 2021 while UBS analysts suggest crude demand will outstrip supply by Q4 2020. The Canadian dollar was supported on the news.

Today’s US data includes ISM non-manufacturing PMI. The index is expected to drop to 36.8 in April compared to 52.5 in March. Canada trade data is also on tap.

Today’s Suggested Range USD/CAD: 1.4010– 1.4110
