Current trend

The Canadian dollar was the only commodity currency, which strengthened on Tuesday against the US dollar. In the absence of important macroeconomic releases, the strengthening of CAD was due to rising oil prices. Support for the Canadian currency is also provided by expectations of rates increase by the Bank of Canada this year. On the other hand, the Canadian currency, like many others, is still affected by the economic crisis in Turkey. Sharp fluctuations in oil prices do not add to the instrument’s stability.

Today, traders should pay attention to the release of data from the US on retail sales (14:30 GMT+2), and on industrial production (15:15 GMT+2). High volatility is expected on the market.
