Current trend

On Tuesday, the CAD significantly strengthened against the USD amid growing oil prices. The pair, however, still remains near its record highs and therefore it is too early to talk about the trend reversal.

In addition to growing commodities prices, the pair strengthens prior to the Bank of Canada meeting that is due today. According to experts, the regulator is going to leave its interest rate at the current 0.5% level as the world stock markets conditions are improving, while low oil prices are already incorporated in the future budget.
