Current trend

Last week, the pair showed a slight decrease in view of positive macroeconomic releases from Canada.

Yesterday, the instrument strengthened moderately, despite the publication of weak data on the US housing market. Market participants continue holding long positions, counting on the breakout of the psychological level of 1.3200 this week. However, the arguments in favor of CAD strengthening are very weighty. The increase in Iran-US tension pushes up oil prices. In addition, oil was supported by a Saudi Arabia statement that it did not want to increase the volume of supplies to the market.

Today at 15:45 (GMT+2) July indicators of business activity in the United States will be published. US services sector is the most stable, so the dynamics of the pair is more dependent on activity in the manufacturing sector. At 22:30 (GMT+2) API will publish a weekly release on oil reserves. The last report recorded an increase by 0.629 million barrels, and this trend may continue.
