    Analytical review:

    • In the past 2 days the Canadian dollar has significantly grown in price against the US dollar (by over 250 points). At yesterday's trading session the pair USD/CAD dropped 1.10%;
    • US Fed Head's comments at yesterday's press conference did not revive demand for the American dollar. Fed Head announced an eventual interest rate hike but did not specify an exact time;
    • The Canadian dollar belongs to commodity currencies, and the demand is supported by positive oil price statistics. WTI oil has grown by over 4 USD since mid-May;
    • The Commitments of Traders Report shows that important market operators have decreased the number of their long positions by 2122 contracts to 64353 contracts. The number of short positions amounts to 94264 contracts;
    • Canadian economy news is worth attention this week: Ivey PMI publication (today) and Bank of Canada Governor's statement (Thursday). These events may affect market volatility.


    • US labour market weakness, lower expectations of an eventual rate rise by Fed at June's meeting and oil quotes growth support demand for the Canadian dollar. According to the Commitments of Traders Report, important operators have reduced their long positions;
    • So, we expect that the CAD will consolidate against the USD in the nearest future. We advise you to search for market entry points to open short positions.
