Loonie Extremely Weak on Negative Housing Data & Oil Prices

The Canadian dollar was among the weakest currencies today, dragged down by negative domestic housing data. Both housing starts and building permits fell unexpectedly. The falling prices for crude oil, Canada’s biggest export, were weighing on the currency as well.

Canadian Dollar Weakens on Falling Crude Prices, Disappointing Exports

The Canadian dollar is weakening against multiple currency rivals midweek as energy prices are hitting the loonie. President Donald Trump confirmed that Iran is “standing down” in the intense Middle East conflict, sending futures plunging. The loonie was also impacted by disappointing export data. Despite being one of the top-performing G20 currencies, the Canadian dollar has had a rough start to 2020.

Loonie Shows Good Performance Despite Adverse Fundamentals

The Canadian dollar fared rather well today, rising against other most-traded currencies or at least staying flat against them. The notable exceptions were the US dollar and the Japanese yen. Losses versus the strong greenback were especially big. But overall, the loonie showed a rather decent performance considering negative macroeconomic data and falling prices for crude oil.

Canadian Dollar Dips As Economy Contracts In October

The Canadian dollar is trading a bit lower against multiple currency competitors to start the trading week, driven by a recent string of disappointing economic numbers, including a surprising economic contraction in October. The loonie has still been one of the best-performing currencies among G20 nations, but anemic growth could affect its performance heading into 2020.

Canadian Dollar Drops After Shockingly Poor Retail Sales

The Canadian dollar fell during Friday’s trading session due to surprisingly poor retail sales data and falling crude oil prices. The currency trimmed losses later, though, and even managed to gain on some of its rivals.

Canadian Dollar Flat on Lower Weekly Earnings, Drop in Wholesale Sales

The Canadian dollar is trading relatively flat against most currency rivals on Thursday as traders digest the newest data that offer a mixed portrait of the national economy. The modest gain in crude oil prices could not lift the loonie higher toward the end of the trading week.

Canadian Dollar Gets Boost from CPI & Crude Oil Prices

The Canadian dollar climbed against its most-traded peers, emerging as the strongest major currency today. The combination of robust inflation and resilient prices for crude oil was the reason for the currency’s amazing performance.

Canadian Dollar Dips As Agriculture, Energy Affected by CN Rail Disruption

The Canadian dollar is trading slightly lower against multiple currency rivals on Tuesday following recent wholesale data. The loonie has been under threat in recent sessions as several Canadians industries are crippled by a work stoppage at the nation’s largest rail company, which has impacted the agriculture and energy sectors.

Canadian Dollar Slumps on Weak Manufacturing Sales, BoC Caution

The Canadian dollar is weakening midweek as new manufacturing sales data and a cautious Bank of Canada (BoC) put pressure on the loonie. While the financial market is nearing all-time highs, the national economy is not experiencing the same level of success. Overall, the Canadian economy remains anemic, but the central bank did note that has the tools to accommodate and prevent further weakness.
