Canadian Dollar Gains as Oil Tops $50 a Barrel

Canadian dollar is higher against its major counterparts today as oil prices gain ground. Also helping the loonie is the upbeat economic forecast from the Bank of Canada. There seems to be a lot of loonie-positive news, and that is fueling demand in Forex trading.

Oil Gives Canadian Dollar a Bump

Oil Drops, Stalling Loonie’s Rally

Loonie Down on Oil, Economic Cautions

Canadian dollar is mostly lower today, falling as concerns about the economy continue and as oil prices remain weak. Although oil is higher than it has been in a while, it is still down on the day, and there are worries about what that means for the Canadian economy.
