Canadian Dollar Strengthens on Oil Rally, Manufacturing Rebound

The Canadian dollar is kicking off 2021 with a bang against the US dollar as the currency broke the 1.27 mark on Tuesday. The loonie is mostly benefiting from rallying energy prices and a recovery in the manufacturing sector. How much room for growth will there be this year?

Russian Ruble Flat As October GDP, Retail Sales Disappoint
