USD/CAD: general review


Current trend

Canadian dollar is under pressure, and the pair USD/CAD continues to grow. During yesterday’s trading session the price grew above the level of 1.3600 which was mainly due to President Trump’s statements about Canada and Mexico. In particular, he once again mentioned building a wall at the Mexican border and reconsidering the NAFTA agreement with Canada. These factors indicate that the USA may limit trade with its closest neighbours. Taking into account that the USA is the biggest economic partner of Canada this scenario must have an impact on the Canadian economy and its national currency.

CAD was also supported by the growth of oil prices: the pair dropped below 1.3600 and is currently trading at the level of 1.3570.
