Canadian Dollar Strengthens as US Crude Tops $45, Biden Transition Formally Approved

The Canadian dollar is strengthening against its US peer on Tuesday as crude oil prices rallied to above $45. The loonie has surged by more than 1% this month, making the currency on track to erase its 2020 loss after stabilizing in the second half of the year. With soaring energy prices and a national economy recovering in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic, is the Canadian dollar setting itself up as the next top currency in 2021?

Russian Ruble Flat As October GDP, Retail Sales Disappoint

The Russian ruble is trading relatively flat against several currency peers to close out the trading week. The ruble has witnessed a resurgence this week as foreign exchange traders poured into the currency amid a significant rally in Brent crude oil prices. But the gains may have been capped by disappointing economic data. With tighter lockdown restrictions in Europe, could the ruble come under pressure in the home stretch of 2020?

Canadian Dollar Flat As Investors Weigh August GDP, Crashing Oil Prices

The Canadian dollar is struggling for direction against a plethora of currencies at the end of the trading week as investors balance a slightly better-than-expected gross domestic product (GDP) in August and cratering crude oil prices. The loonie was impacted earlier this week after the central bank forecast that a recovery would not occur until 2022.

Canadian Dollar Slumps to Two-Week Low As 8% Oil Crash Impacts Loonie

The Canadian dollar is slumping to its lowest level in two weeks against the US dollar on Tuesday. The loonie is plummeting primarily on crude oil crashing as much as 9%, joining the broader market selloff. It is going to be relatively quiet on the data front this week, which means the loonie will find direction on energy prices and the central bank’s midweek policy meeting.

Canadian Dollar Pares Gain on Weaker Energy, Capped by Strong Manufacturing

The Canadian dollar pared its weekly gain to close out the trading week, driven primarily by slumping energy prices. But the loonie’s drop was capped by better-than-expected manufacturing data. Still, the Canadian dollar is poised for a significant 1% weekly advance against the US dollar as the currency continues its rebound following an abysmal first half of 2020.

Canadian Dollar Mixed Amid Higher-Than-Expected Inflation, Strong Retail Sales

The Canadian dollar is trading mixed against its most traded currency rivals midweek. The loonie has been gaining on the greenback on Wednesday as higher-than-expected inflation and strong retail sales data were in the backdrop of the Canadian dollar’s ascent. But falling energy prices capped the currency’s modest rally.

Canadian Dollar Fails to Garner Momentum on Stellar Jobs Report, Rising Energy Prices

The Canadian dollar is failing to garner momentum at the end of the trading week, despite a stellar jobs report and rising energy prices. The loonie has rebounded substantially since the market meltdown in March, driven primarily by greater confidence in global financial markets and rallying crude oil prices. Analysts are optimistic of a strong second half for the Canadian dollar, so could it happen?

Canadian Dollar Flat As Oil Slumps, Manufacturing Rebounds

The Canadian dollar is trading flat against its G10 currency rivals at the end of the holiday-shortened trading week. The loonie has been gaining against several of its counterparts over the last week, despite an influx of disappointing economic data. With energy prices firmly rebounding and the investors selling the US dollar, could the Canadian dollar have a strong second half?

Canadian Dollar Strengthens on Better-Than-Expected April GDP

The Canadian dollar is strengthening on Tuesday after the economy’s April contraction was better than what the market had initially forecast. The loonie is also finding support in housing data, as well as investors exiting its American counterpart. The Canadian dollar will finish the month higher against the greenback.

Canadian Dollar Plunges As GDP Contracts 9% in March, BoC Unveils New QE

The Canadian dollar hit the pause button on its recent rally after the federal government released its gross domestic product (GDP) reading early for the first time ever. The loonie is slumping on news that economic activity suffered the biggest monthly decline in history. With falling energy prices and accommodating central bank, it could be a downward trend for the Canadian dollar in the near-term.
