The Canadian dollar strengthened to a six-week high on Tuesday, driven by a rally in crude oil prices and strong housing data. The Canadian economy, which has been anemic for much of 2019, has enjoyed a string of positive economic reports lately, impressing investors at a time of global volatility. This is good news for the incumbent government with an election about a month away.

The Canadian dollar is weakening against a basket of currencies midweek as the price of US crude oil cratered as much as 5%.

As economic data continues to be mixed, it might be a difficult second half for the currency.

The Canadian dollar is mixed against a basket of currencies on Tuesday as investors sift through new motor vehicle sales data and foreign securities purchases for May.

Canadian Dollar Mixed As Crude Surges, GDP Dips in April

The Canadian dollar is trading mixed against several major currency rivals on the Canada Day holiday.

Canadian Dollar Mixed on Disappointing Auto Sales, Rising Energy Prices

The Canadian dollar is mixed at the end of the trading week, finding direction against several currencies on recent automobile sales data and rallying crude oil prices.

Canadian Dollar Unable to Keep Momentum From Strong Data

The Canadian dollar is weakening on mixed data on Tuesday. The loonie has been unable to keep the momentum from last week’s stellar economic data, gradually paring its gains against the greenback on the year. The Canadian buck could further weaken over the summer as the central bank is unlikely to put forward an aggressive normalization strategy until at least after the federal election.

Canadian Dollar Weakens as US-China Trade War Overshadows Upbeat Data

Canadian Dollar Slumps to Four-Week Low Ahead of BOC Rate Decision

The Canadian dollar weakened to a four-week low on Tuesday ahead of the Bank of Canada (BOC)’s decision on interest rates. The market is anticipating a prolonged pause to rate hikes, which suggests that officials are not confident that the economy can withstand a move to normalize monetary policy. Investors also traded the loonie on rallying energy prices, as well as data that showed nearly half of Canadians are on the brink of insolvency.

Canadian Dollar Rallies on GDP, Energy Prices

The Canadian dollar is rallying to finish the trading week, buoyed by economic growth beating market expectations and rising energy prices.

Canadian Dollar Cannot Hold Onto Momentum in USMCA Aftermath

The Canadian dollar is trading lower on Tuesday in the aftermath of the historic trilateral trade deal between Canada, the US, and Mexico.
