Current trend

Last week, the pair grew in view of the strengthening of the US dollar and the decline in oil prices. With the opening of the new trading session, growth continued: the instrument is near the resistance level of 1.3000.

The US currency showed strength last week, despite the restrained tone of the published minutes of the FOMC. The regulator did not say anything new about plans to raise interest rates this year and did not specify dates of future increases.

In the absence of important macroeconomic releases from Canada, the main impact on CAD were oil prices, which fell against the backdrop of growing geopolitical tensions between the US and North Korea, thus weakening the Canadian dollar. 

The beginning of the week promises to be quiet because of holidays in Canada and the US. The second half of the week is expected to be more volatile, as is usually does at the end of the month, as well as the release of a number of important economic data.
