USD/CAD Open 0.9989-94 Overnight Range 0..9970-1.0001
|The Canadian dollar traded in a narrow band overnight deriving a little support from the rising AUD/USD, Better than expected Aussie trade data combined with higher Asian and Australian equity indices kept the Aussie bid. The Greek debt negotiations are on-going and with US payrolls data due tomorrow, traders were content to bash the currencies about within their recent ranges. WTI oil is trading at $96.62/bbl due to an increase in stockpiles and gold is at $1,744.59
The short term CAD$ technical’s are bullish although support at 0.9960 (200 day moving average) is proving sticky. For today, USD support is at 0.9960 and 0.9910. Resistance is at 1.0020 and 1.0060.
The Canadian dollar appears to have a positive bias but I don’t think the current 0.9960-1.0040 range will be broken until after tomorrow’s US and Canadian employment reports.
