USD/CAD: the pair is developing upward dynamics

OANDA:USDCAD   Dolar A.S. / Dolar Kanada
Current trend

US dollar dropped considerably against Canadian currency, marking a new local minimum since December 6. The reason for the development of “bearish” tendencies was general weakening of the US currency in view of resumed reduction of returns on US bonds as well as the release of uncertain macroeconomic statistics from the USA. In turn, Canadian Thursday statistics was above expectations which caused the increase of demand for CAD.

In November Canadian CPI grew by 0.3% MoM after increase by 0.1% in October. Analysts expected the index to increase by 0.2% MoM. YoY inflation grew by 2.1% after increase by 1.4% in October. In this case the real dynamics was also better than the outlooks of experts. The data on retail sales in Canada in October were also positive. MoM the indicator increased by 1.5% against the expected growth by only 0.3%.

During the morning session on December 22 the instrument is trading in both directions waiting for the occurrence of new market drivers. On Friday attention will be focused in US statistics on personal income and expenditure that is due at 15:30 (GMT+2) and the data on new house sales at 17:00 (GMT+2). Canada will respond with a release of monthly GDP data for October at 15:30 (GMT+2).
