Yesterday, USDCAD initially climbed from 1.3400 up to 1.3442 before falling back to 1.3396. The pair then rallied to a 3 week high of 1.3451 before falling back to 1.3427. Over the past week, the range has been just 1 cent (1.3353 – 1.3451). The CAD is the best performing currency today (and now for the week as well) boosted by a solid GDP report, a break back above $60 in oil, and soft U.S. data. USDCAD dropped from 1.3424 down to 1.3341 with corrective bounces limited to 1.3370 thus far. Currently, the TSX is down 0.20% while the DJIA is up 0.57%. EURCAD is down 0.50% trading between 1.4989 and 1.5097 – near 1 week lows. GBPCAD is down 0.75% trading between 1.734197 and 1.7636 – near 5 week lows. JPYCAD is down 0.80% trading between 0.01203 and 0.01214–near 1 week lows. Gold is up 0.40% trading between $1,287 and $1,300USD/oz, silver is up 1.10% trading between $14.98 and $15.20USD/oz, both off 1 month lows. Oil (WTI crude) is up 0.70% trading between $59.50 and $60.78 – near 5 month highs.
